There we were
stuck in a busy street
everything around us
moved ever so swiftly

But not us,
we just stood there
not a flinch  —
motionless

Noisy as the avenue was,
the only sound I could hear
was the silence between us —
ear-splitting, deafening

I wanted so much to scream
but I couldn’t even utter a word
as I was already drowning
in my own thoughts,

Lost in the conversation
we were having inside my head.
