Nothing to say

by Shreya

I wish I could have been better
but I’m not good with
‘the emotional talk’.
I’m indifferent to it
it’s too confusing.
The talk requires maps and plans,
plotting on graphs,
calculations of feelings.
And I guess I’m no good at that;
you might keep on talking
and you’ll find me
“don’t worry,
things will be alright
with time,”
even though some things
don’t make sense
at all.
