You Never Said My Name

You were greeting me?
My ears heard the silence of your heart in the noise of your speech;
you never said my name.

All the charms that I thought dazzled
seem now tarnished by neglect,
and every note you sang when talking has soured;
you never said my name.

You couldn't pause with a comma and dangle at your sentence's end my familiar?
A period took my place,
or an ellipses...
you never said my name.

But I spoke yours.
Or was it mine in the guise of another's,
hoping that you'd answer and not echo?
You never said my name.

Were you afraid it would accustom your tongue?
Or was it that you address for pay and I was just a generic case of charity to you?
You never said my name.

It was understood?
Ah, I understand now,
and so will you.
I'll never say your name again.
