Dear Silence

Mon, 02/05/2018 - 18:09 -- jnm189

dear silence,

you echoed 

across vast canyons 

in my mind

spanning time and 

space and 

history.

you were a blank 

canvas 

never to be painted on 

a black hole 

always staring back 

at me

eyes wide open.

silence filled my 

life

my mind 

my every waking 

moment.

somehow the absence

of everything 

is heavier than

anything.

 

This poem is about: 
Me
