You pause while talking

to catch your breath

and to steady your emotions.

Talking unreleases pain

and threatens to overwhelm you;

you are not sure what to do.

Between us, pain fills the silence;

logically, I understand you,

yet emotionally, not really.

Silence is our friend

that connects us now;

without it, we would be strangers.

Yet friendship comes not easily

to either you or me,

so we enjoy what we have.

Easily we talk to one another

and share our lives, our pain,

finding joy where none existed before.
