Loud as Silence

Funny, how loud silence is…

quiet on the surface as a glassy pond

smooth, cool and peaceful

but look closer, constant motion revealed.

 

Funny how loud silence is…

the sound of it roars in my ears

the clock tick heartbeat

each breath magnified, echoing coldly.

 

Funny how loud silence is…

that single thought whispers

yet over and over is repeated

the very sound of it, becomes deafening.

 

Funny how loud silence is…

how it holds the mind sleepless

exposing wounds thought well healed

old memories, of how it came crashing down.

 

Funny how loud silence is…

hearing as though now – life as it was

twisting and distorting what may have been

ringing sour and flat, for I am what they made of me.

 

Funny how loud silence is…

never silent over years sound diminised

my spirit leans, my color faded, yet I remain

the creaking of time reminds me, still I stand proud.
