Awkward Silence

Eyes not lying
I am dying
Spoke through sobbing
Hysterical crying

Maybe 4 a.m
Hollow deafening dark
Below zero wind chill
Strolling through
The snow covered park
Always meaning
To schedule a walk
Being out of touch
Hurt all the more

My advice sounds useless
Shallow guilt amid jest, awkward silence
Unwanted anxious suspense

I never know what to say
Nor comfort the kindest way
Words form clouded
It later rained
