The confessor  was busy
again
preoccupied with so many other things
family, job, friends, hobbies, ignoring the pain, pretending not to notice
the silence

The confessor had stopped
talking
to anyone who might force him to stop
hiding
and act like an adult

The confessor was taking council
inside his own mind, over-caffeinated and
justifying actions he’d been advised not to
take
by the listener

The listener sighed at the
silence
bothered
but not surprised
