Closer

I    know    that you have
the capability to speak
and I am familiar with
the    sound   of your voice,
but lately,
I have heard no words
of    any    sort
pass through your lips
that have been directed to
    me. 
The many words I have had
for you to hear
have    all    gone unspoken,
and my will to
start a conversation
with you has    weakened
to the point where I try
to avoid the very
    sight    of you.
This distance that has been
developing between us
is    slowly    killing me 
on the inside
and I would give up
just about    anything
to be
just a little bit
    closer    
to you,
but I can’t.
