Silent Burden

I make noise
In my space
To relieve the silence
Of its awe-full burden.

It’s a heavy load
My silence carries
Trying to keep the noise down
And make the air
Be still.

It’s completely silent here. After we hung up I started typing this poem out just to make noise, because it was too silent.

    It’s interesting that, where I see silence as peace, you see silence as a burden. Hope you find the peace, CJ.
