Quiet

Some days, I don’t want to have a conversation.
I will listen but won’t wish to be verbal.
Don’t provoke me to speak by asking questions.
It will keep annoying me further.

Don’t mention people that I adore
Who are physically not around me.
Their absence hurts me to the core.
Their repeated mention is highly annoying.

Don’t tell me that life’s pretty.
I am not going to see it as reality.
There is not only the brighter side;
You would see the duality if you tried.
