Delicate Hum of Thoughts

in hive-161155 •  2 years ago 

I've lived with quietness—

I realize it well.

I know the peaceful squeaking

Of my parent's home,

The unexpected quiet

Prior to a deluge of downpour…

The nonappearance of a companion

Who won't return once more.

I know the dull quiet

Of your eyes

The 12 PM observes

Of disappointments and murmurs.

I'm not hesitant to be separated from everyone else

With phantoms or lightning…

It's my own quiet

I discover alarming.
