Suspended

The echo of
the words you
still don’t say
is deafening
the silence gapes
the vacuum sucks
me in screaming
without sound
an empty void
as wide as the ticking
of the seconds
and months
between one breath
and the next
in this conversation
that will never
be finished
while my heart is
waiting to beat
my heart is suspended
between one
beat and the next
waiting for
your words.
Waiting for
the right time
and meanwhile
nothing
can
begin.
