Silence scattered (Day 812)

Is it enough  that
I told you
how I feel (maybe not 
how much  
not how little
nor even what  
but  at least  how)

Is it enough  that
you trampled 
and smashed the fragile 
silence  scattered 
shards of eggshell 
strewn carelessly
in your wake

Or  perhaps  you prefer 
the power 
of not knowing  
the way 
it allows you to take 
what you want  
without the sting 
of conscience you might 
feel  if  for an hour 
or two
you simply listened
