The silence

The silence

The silence

It charges the mind

Loaded gun

Roulette spun

Inventing reasons to see

Beyond eye’s sight space

 

The silence

Like a stubborn child

It wriggles

Fighting back

Refusing to cut me slack

As I compress it

 

The silence

Looming like a cloud

It hovers

All covers

In icy understanding

Of oncoming death

 

The silence

It leaks from the roof

Into bed

And breakfast

Routine of a buzzing life

Filling emptiness

 

The silence

It pervades matter

Engulfs me

Like dark cloak

Erasing the words we spoke

In between phrases

 

The silence

It gnaws like a doubt

Its teeth firm

Its jaws set

Onslaught rising at sunset

It carves my time loops

 

The silence

I embrace its fog

It cajoles

Caresses

Within past weave frame dresses

As I tick seconds

  1. I find silence is only helpful when I am writing. In everything else in my life, i want there to be noise. Silence for me, without the ability to write what I am feeling, can be very dangerous to my inner peace.

    • I understand the feeling Eric. Thanks for sharing. I personally have an ambiguous relationship with silence. I wonder sometimes if I actually have an ambiguous relationship with all concepts around me in this plane 😀
