Fortress

Excellent job you’re doing
quiet
keeping the peace
You, Me
Carrying On
Crossing paths but Never quite meeting
Somewhere along I learnt to turn
the other cheek, at the rocks
you, i, dropped
in each other’s way;
kicked to the side of the curb –
so did You,
probably.

I can’t imagine
You
not being tired of this hopscotch because I’m worn
out.
I never saw it coming –
I wonder if You did –
You seem well prepared:
Pretending to be okay
with this Wall
standing Tall
of the rocks we threw at each other
without knowing
not aiming-
Truly, are you okay
with this?
i, you, we never meant
to start a war
what is this
deafening silence
even for?
