silence

longing fills my heart
i can hardly breathe
the walls echoing with silent reverberation

turn the tv up a little louder
to drown out the loneliness

watch ACL a little longer
cure my ills with lyrical genius
pretend i’m not alone

turn Norah up a little louder
to sing away the silence

the essence of my soul
searching for the place
where i can just be

wanting to cuddle up
to the silence

wanting to talk to the person
who hears me say “i hurt”
and the only response is
“i know.”
and it’s true

no explanations
no solutions
but to embrace the reality that is now
in the silence

beautiful.

soul-searching.

silence.
