There are times when I need to be alone,
When even the noise of nothing in particular,
By someone very specific,
Which I have come to love ~
Become too loud.
The moments are rare and far between,
But every once in a while,
I need absolute quiet to smile.
We have learned, she and I,
To communicate, and in spite of my need for silence,
We always talk.
Respite comes only after,
And disaster never follows.
So do as she does, and as I do too,
Fear not confrontation,
It can be very good for you.
