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
