Specificity

Your actions convey
You’re running away
Meanwhile, your lips remain still

I try to inquire
My only desire
Is hearing you say how you feel

I don’t understand
I offer a hand
You push it away and retreat

I ask for answer
You treat me like cancer
With words that are never concrete

I follow along
I know that it’s wrong
But so is not saying goodbye

My actions are screaming
I know that I’m dreaming
To think that you’ll break before I

My actions convey
I want you to stay
I know that you know it and though

With only assertion
I won’t see desertion
Or yes in the absence of no
