Silent Fading

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 19th, 2020, is “gobbledygook.” Use the word “gobbledygook” any way you’d like. Have fun!

You once told me you love me
But your actions don’t confess
Feelings, your gobbledygook
Of words your tongue can’t get around
It’s a miscommunicated mess
Because you don’t talk
And I wish to feel
The great love story
Though only words
They are important
Because assuming
I know the speech of your heart
Is where it all breaks down
And opportunity missed
For I no longer wish to guess
My place in this confusion
I’m looking for sturdy ground
And unless you can tell me
What all of it means
It’s the end of the tale
That faded silently
