I’m drowning in your alphabet, and suffocating on my own words.
We both speak the same language, but English doesn’t make sense when it’s you saying it .
You don’t hear me no matter how loud I yell. No matter how close we are.
We scream and scream until our voices become their own frequency of incomprehensible static.
So now I’m quiet. I convey my emotions though glares and grimaces.
I don’t have to ignore you because we now we never speak. If I hide behind my hair, you will always keep walking.
The less eye contact the better. The less sad smiles the better. The more I forget you exist around me so constantly, the better.
