Don’t Know What to Say

You are looking at me

but don’t know what to say,

You are not use

to people expressing

their feelings in this way.

Confused and frightened

you put up a wall

afraid of what else

might come to call.

You don’t have any answers

for this situation,

so whatever you say

will be built on

shaky foundations.

I have plenty to say about

what is going on in my head

but by your reaction I know

you would prefer it wasn’t said.
