silence [poem]

I hope you like silence
love
that the lack of conversation doesn’t
twist your stomach into knots
that you don’t expect our interactions
to always come with the volume turned way up
loving me will often require stillness
eyes glued to words from the latest story
I’ve dug myself into
I hope you can love me then
in the absent moments
when I am there
but not there in the room with you
I hope you know how to handle the emptiness
until I come back surfacing for air
your quiet presence
the only thing to ground me back into this world
this reality
