no one talks

no one talks in my family

there are no goodbyes, no hellos

no empty small talk

definitely no i love yous

just the occasional yell at each other when there’s a miscommunication

or lack thereof

no amount of divine inspiration can save us

i’ve tried and it’s failed

because no one talks in my family

and there sure as hell isn’t anyone who listens

    Have faith. No matter how hopeless, someone’s listening.

  2. I’ve always enjoyed the way you write. Families are tricky things, you can’t choose the kind you’re born into, but you do get a chance to build a different kind of legacy for your own. That’s what I’ve learnt and that’s what can be hoped for.
