When you say nothing at all...

When you say nothing at all
I feel you tell me more
Than when you speak

When you say nothing at all
Your eyes tell me
What words can never express

When you say nothing at all
I know that within
You are hurting, real bad

When you say nothing at all
Inside you are crying
Even if your eyes are dry

When you say nothing at all
You cause me more pain
Than when you speak

So talk to me, tell me
I implore you, tell me
Speak to me

Tell me what pains you
Tell me what’s hurting you
Tell me

Speak to me
That I may share your pain
For what it’s worth

Speak to me
For you kill me
When you say nothing at all

Nice on, Raja. It's frustrating sometimes when people expect you to understand their silences.
