He spoke

image

The man who never said a word.
The man who only smiled.
The man who’s silence I found unsettling.
He finally spoke.

He thanked me.
He seemed sincere.
He told me I’d be missed.
He gave me a big hug.

I didn’t think he cared.
I didn’t think he paid attention.
I didn’t think he’d notice my absence.
I was dumbfounded.

The Unsettling Silence

image

 

He enters the room.
He says little or nothing.
His smile seems fake — always.
I often wonder what he’s thinking.
He may just be a man of little words
Or simply a man who is slow to trust.
Either way,  his silence is unsettling.
