Calando

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 (          ).
