Jagged Thought #218: The Sound of Silence


 

Not the sound of
Chaos.

Not the sound of screaming
Death.

Not the sound of voices
Muttering.

Not the sound of manic
Laughter

Not the sound of pills
Prescribed, and popped.

Not the sound of
The water bubbler
And the PRN.

Not the sound of
Floors walked on with
Tread worn socks.

Not the sound of
Disaster.

Not the sound of broken
Hope.

Just silence.

Not the sound of thoughts
Racing.

Not the sound of trailing
Wolves.

Just silence, on a snowy
April, Monday.

And I am ok with this.
