Texting

When you are away
we chat in square text windows;
stark white spaces
filled with sharp black letters;
We trade cute yellow faces,
simple emotions,
small smiles and winks.

When you’re with me
our pauses say more
than all our words.
When parted,
our words are swallowed,
lost in gaps.

I long for the sound of your voice,
treasure all your small words
and broken sentences;
I dread the long silences
which can’t be deciphered.

I miss your smell
and your sky blue eyes,
how your hair falls into them,
the colour of sunlit hope.
I miss your smile
and all that hides behind it.

I lack the words
to tell you how much
or how deeply.
