Though I know.


Itís over already,
but still, I wait for my decision
though itís written in the unsaid,
a language of avoidance
and realisation
that change isnít forthcoming,
stuck in staccato,
Iím weary, shrink to nothing,
grey and flat lining
slipping into despair,
then, dream fantasies of a future,
without you.

This feels as though it has been written following a lot of soulsearching, or even soulrummaging, resolving in the weariness described. The contrast between 'staccato' and 'flat lining' is very effective. Applause from Coo & Co :>)

This is quietly devastating. It's all in the unsaid.

As Elle said, "Brava."

That rang bells for me, the sense of loss and bewildering emotion, brava
