Asides

Knowing you I found myself!

Today I’m left with silence, a deafening one.
It wasn’t always like this.
My silence was always filled with our endless talks,
day after day, night after night.
Those were the days when our silence also spoke with each other,
now, I have only silence.
Previously in silence I heard you,
now silence has my own voice.
I listen to me.
There was so much I shared with you,
but today’s silence shares so much with me about myself.
I learned to talk in silence with you,
now silence talks to me.
It has so much to say, so much to share.
The talks are still endless.
The difference is that the voice comes from deep inside me.
You gave me silence where I met myself,
it no more haunts me.
We have embraced each other,
after all, I’m introduced to myself here.
Till now I have known myself from your perception,
now I have been revealed with my perception of myself.
You gave me your perception, but I found mine.
I had you for so long that I had forgotten I had me too.
Knowing you, I found myself.
