periods.

if a gasp can be measured with punctuation
I suppose my nuances can be read
if every word can drip with guidance
I lament your silence is soaking wet

“it is simple and it need not be said”
we linger at an impasse
and
only nothing
only space
only a blinking bar
and
only a period
can lay us
abruptly
and
finally, abed.

  1. The silence you describe can sometimes be the most uncomfortable silence ever. That impasse is always so awkward. But I liked this. It was crisp, and very appropriate for me, given my work day. Thanks!

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great
    blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
