Everyday conversation
Masks truth
Laughter and vulnerability
Friendship and care
All the pieces fit
But no words are said
Nothing in stone
Marking the change
But in the silence
It lingers
Hearts whispering
Across the room
Aware of the “more”
That no one chooses to discuss
But the laughter continues
Things move on
Yet there it is
Unwavering in its honesty
Disregarding everything
Words uttered
Type of setting
Even other characters in the room
Through everything
It waits
For the right moment
When words spill freely
From unbound tongues
Until then it lurks
In the silence
