Hiding From Silence

Hiding From Silence

The sound of silence; so fleeting and brief;

For some it is a welcome and wanted relief;

A reprise from societal cacophony and grief.


Their minds longing for the quiescence from commotion.

Idle time to reconcile; to inventory emotion.

They flourish, they grow; floating upon an existential ocean.


The sound of silence; so ephemeral and sweet.

Yet my soul withers with every heartbeat.

This moment of peace obscured by discerning defeat.


My mind recoils from the deficit of distractions;

Thoughts paralyzed; crippled by anxious traction.

The void in my being filled with self-doubt and depression.
