starring: silence

Absence wears a disguise
looks a lot like days before you
and it scares the hell out of me

the quietest nights put on a show
deafening silence at center stage
I, sitting in the audience
watch the scenes unfold helplessly

at curtain call I have no idea
if I should give a round of applause
or cry.

A gratitude note.

absence is the only option

It lives among rustling of trees
letting space between leaves
leave but a void

non-existence of sound tells a tale
of every flaw scratched on petals
silently they fall
like dusk kissing the ground

so silent the heart wonders
if it’s still there.

flatlining

Numbness
not from too many feelings
but because absence’s
sharp edges
severed the once mellifluous
melody.
