What. I Need You. To Say

WHAT. I NEED YOU. TO SAY

words. just. melt.
on. the. page.
returning.only.when.they.cant.
I keep movin on.
but. it keeps. following. me.
persisting.
insisting.
but. not. leading.
just teasing.
it dont make no difference babe
how much. you think. you can.
ignore.
its there. staring. us. intheface–
dont. you. see. ?
Lie.All.You.Want.
it will not–
go away.
staring. us. intheface–
persisting.
insisting.
evading. you–and.–those words–
evading, eluding,
why. must. you. be. ?
constantly–
seeing me–
but not saying–
what. I need you. to say–
staring.melting.drowning. …
lasting. crying. out. blindly.
mutely. with–rage–and–
sadness
such… –desperation–
go on. take.a.step.
I have/ I think/
much more can I do–?
but wait.
until. you.decide.
you dont know–you dont know what its like
and I.–cannot.–express.–
I try.–how I.–tryyy.–
not much more. I can do.
because, frankly,
I–…
am too scared.
