words

 

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
