The Missing Link (2)

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark


What happens if two cease to talk,
when one does not answer to the other
even if the other tries to open up a wound?

What happens if one tries to reach
out the other, and the response of
the other is only a cold shoulder?

What happens if one speaks,
craving to be listened to,
and the other has eyes
only on computer and cold TV?
