Your lack of words

To me eat at my soul

day and night to the point

I don’t know what to say to you.

And I know the moments I look at you,

My eyes no longer reflect happiness, just sadness  and when I’m about to say something.

Just one look from you shuts me down and my walls go up again and I’m no longer see the person I once thought I knew.
