You describe it so well. Anyone who has experienced a lack of any response from someone you reach out to will know of what you speak. It is a hollow feeling in the least. But your poem states the strong impact of this experience. Yes, the creeping chill, says it well. Thanks George. Great piece.

I guess 'no' can feel like nothing, though from the obverse perspective, it might be considered a 'cruel to be kind' response.
For some, it may be that expecting 'no' and receiving 'yes' is equally debilitating, even frightening. That aside, you've given humiliation a substance here that resembles more an entire biopic rather than a short poem, and brings 'that place' alive.
