I tried to convey in this poem what was wrong with a relationship I was in - lack of communication.
I wanted you to hold my hand;
Instead you reached for a book
and began to read.
I felt cold where we walked outside;
you casually put your hand in your pocket
and carried on down the street.
At the bus stop where we sat,
I poured out my heart to you
and your hand stayed by your side.
I wanted you to hold my hand,
for comfort, affection,
just to know that you were there,
but you never gave in.
