No Words Were Said (Challenge 17)

No Words Were Said (Challenge 17)

I found her in bed and not alone,
No words were said,
But she must have seen
The look of hurt on my face.
I wonder if she cared.
She didn’t come running after me,
That’s all I know.
I skidded out her driveway
To the first bar I found,
And immediately ordered a beer,
Telling the less than interested bartender
My story.
No words were said,
I wonder if he cared,
Probably not.
So I went home,
And not wanting to bear
The silence of another anymore,
Remained silent.

Passion filled my heart,
As I sped to her house,
Quick as I could,
Not being able to wait any longer.
You should always knock
Before you open a door,
That was my mistake.
I found her in bed with another.
and a feeble attempt
To clothes themselves.
No words were said,
Just silence.
I know she saw the hurt in my eyes,
I’ll always wonder
If that cracked her heart a little too.
All I know,
Is she didn’t come running after me.
My heart splitting into a million shards,
All over the car,
I was drawn to a dark and empty bar.
I ordered the first thing I could think of,
A beer. I don’t remember what kind.
I spilled my woes
To the bartenders ear,
But he seemed not to care,
No words were said,
Just silence.
Piece by piece,
I brought myself home,
And, not wanting to bear
The silence of another,
This time I remained silent.
