• Silence

    Somehow I always felt you closeSensed a truth, a knowingLike a knotUnraveling in the dark indentationsOf my lonely selfAre you there… bashful soul?What is this sighThat yearns beneath my breathThat lurks at the edge of my hopeless whisperIs it you, Silence?Is it your whisper… that I long to hearIs it your stillness that I had turned away fromIs it your fleshThat I must nowReveal my naked self toAre you the one that I yearn to kiss? ©MJ Donnery
