Silence chosen by one
quiet solitude
Lack of connection
to another
muted torture

Pain of loss unchosen
peaceful torment
River full of jagged stones
on bare feet
private misery

Alone again
not chosen
Meals as one
isolated waking
sleepless dreaming

Chooses another
love removed
his choice
Loneliness prevails
walking soundlessly away
