A Different Silence.


This is not the silence of yesterday.

Of little girls with shared dreams.

Of weaving forget-me-nots.

 

This is not the silence of an evening stroll.

Of lying in the grass, counting stars.

Of cuddling.

 

I know the silence of comfort.

Of friendship that needs no words.

Of sharing a smile.

Or finding shadows in his eyes.

 

This is a silence of Β pain.

Of anger and hurt.

Of shivering with rage.

of holding back tears.

 

This is a silence of fear.

Of hiding under beds.

Of running.

Of holding your breath,

And stilling your heart.

 

This is a different silence.
