Why are we so afraid of it (you and I)?

Afraid of noise(less)ness.

Why is it that when quiet seeps into the porous spaces between us

We assassinate it with a clatter of hollowed out words?

Have you ever wondered what silence might actually be

If only allowed to breathe for a moment,

Or maybe two?


Maybe it’s the soundless sound of two souls singing.

A chorus of sacred nothingness.

A silence that echoes on and on (and on)

In the hallways of your heart.

Of my heart.

Of our heart.


Will you be silent with me a while?

We can be explorers in these forests of audio emptiness.

(I’ll hold your hand if I am afraid.)

And we can discover what wonders are hidden in quietness

Because we will be brave enough to say (          ).
