silent—a messy poem.

walls so thin i can hear my sister on facetime with the boy who loves her
and with the boy she loves

the call ends and for a moment, it’s silent

2am rolls around and i wake up to a phone call
ringing from two doors down
my other sister answers
and i lie awake listening to her laughter as the sun rises the next morning

i love the way he makes her laugh

call ends and the silence creeps in

7am hits and my phone starts buzzing
i go to answer when i realize
it’s just my morning alarm

i hit snooze
to sleep away the pain
