What am I? I’m the third person in any couple.
There’s another of me, they say four’s a crowd.
I am the one that never speaks to the other,
What I want to say remains unsaid
Even though many words are spoken.
But the absence of my words, and theirs
Screams above demanding attention,
Creating a tension that’s pulling us apart,
Pulling us into miserable places
That we’d never thought we see.
And if we hadn’t of seen them then
We never could have believed,
They ever were there in the first place.
