She had nothing to say

he asked,nothing she said

the call got disconnected,

and after a minute or two

the phone beeped

again and again and it beeped

for a long time,

words left unsaid had found a way

to be expressed,

her silence was now screaming

through the text.


Sometimes we have a lot to say but are scared to say it aloud, we are scared as to how the person will react to it, will s/he even listen my whole point or will an opinion pop out midway? And so sometimes we hesitate to say, but still want them to know what is going within us inside; that is when words written, typed, printed come handy. A mail, message, letter, note, chit is a medium through which we can let someone know what we are feeling without telling them ourselves, but beware you never know how your words are being read.
