Tsunami

Isn’t it funny
How you can sit next to somebody
And still be incapable to reach out
To touch his hand
Much less his heart
Let alone his soul

How it could feel like
There’s a brick wall
Separating both of you
In the form of two
Unspoken words
You’ve danced around
In circles before
The answer to the question
No one dares ask aloud:
“Not anymore.”

How after ten minutes
The bench where you sit
Is still chipped
In the same places
The day is just as warm
But the storm inside your heart
Has left you with a sinister calm
The way a tsunami wipes away a village
And leaves everything quiet
Because everyone is dead.
