Writer’s Silence

Monica

A writer lives

in a world of silence

sometimes welcome calm

other times deafening torment

the heart may beat

words falling into place

like good little soldiers

or it may stutter and stammer

at a loss to find rhythm

or any sense

wretched cycles

from morning’s light

to midnight darkness

absent sounds of a soul

searching for a breath of life

Sometimes Silence

sometimes silence

Sometimes silence

becomes my breath of salvation

offering everything and anything

abundant pleasure

Sometimes silence

eats me alive

leaving behind

only the smallest of crumbs

Sometimes silence

hears my heartbeat

holds it close

knowing its truth

Sometimes silence

steals my happiness

leaving tears as footprints

on a dark trail

Sometimes silence

walks beside me

the lone friend

reassurance of all I am

Sometimes silence

leaves me stranded

bereft in thoughts

of who am I
