You Have the Right to Remain Silent

My Broken Heart

It’s so quiet here
waiting to hear from you.

I feel like you’re punishing me,
but I don’t even know
what I did to wrong you.

Do I deserve this treatment,
this so-called friendship?

You read my Miranda rights
and arrest me
to comply with your silence.

So you won’t hear from me
anymore either.
