silence may be golden

may be deafening

may be companionable

may be self-protective

may be punishment

may be fraught

may be drenched in implication

what is this silence I hear




silence is a concept

i hear the roar of emptiness

a conch shell held to my ear

surf crashing

gulls crying

an inner-dialogue

no less insistent than waves




let us end this noisy silence

it is purposeless

we have voices

our time is finite

if it proves to be final

then let it be final

i want to hear the words
