Texting

What can I say in such a space?
I have so much to share
I can­not read between the lines
The silence I can’t bear

You tell me this, I tell you that
But do we real­ly hear it
Con­fu­sion ris­es as we chat
And ten­sion tears right through it

What made us think that this could work
That we could share our feel­ings
With so few char­ac­ters to use
No face to stop our reel­ing

The les­son that I hope we learned
The mes­sage worth receiv­ing
Is that this way of con­ver­sa­tion
Isn’t so reveal­ing.
