SILENCE


SILENCE

S.JENSEN (C)2017

SITTING HERE

THOUGHTS ON

MY MIND

YET SO

WALLOWING

IN AND OUT

THE SOUNDS

OF MUSIC

TO THE COMPLETE

SILENCE

ALL AROUND

TO BE

GROUNDED

SOMEHOW

CRYING

IS WANTED

BUT TEARS

REST ON MY

EYES

AND WONT FALL

THINKING

WHERE

DOES

THINGS

GO FROM HERE

AND WHAT

IS IT ALL

FOR

NOW

IN THIS

AFTER SPOT

I REST IN

THINKING

ON WHAT

I WANT

FOR DINNER

AND

MAYBE

CHERISH

MORE

OF THE WINE

I GOT

TIL ITS GONE

CAUSE

LOOKS

THAT WILL

BE THE LAST OF

IT FOR

A LONG TIME

COMING

NOW

A TREAT

THAT I CAN’T

REALLY AFFORD

TO ENJOY

THE TREES

OUT THE WINDOW

ARE SO STILL

JUST LIKE

HOW I FEEL

WELL

TO THOSE

ON THE

OTHERSIDE

GOOD NIGHT

AND FOR

THOSE

STILL

ON THIS

SIDE OF THINGS

IN THE WORLD

NIGHT

IS JUST BEGINNING

TO APPROACH

BUT DAY IS HANGING

ON FOR ANOTHER

HOUR OR TWO

GREY CLOUDS

IN THE SKY

AS THE

DAYS WINDS DOWN

AND THE

HEART OF MINE

NOW

TRULY SEEMS

TO HAVE

ANOTHER

HOLE RESTING

IN IT

SOMEHOW

I GOT

TO FIND A WAY

TO PICK UP

THE PUZZLE

PIECES

AND MAKE

THEM FIT BACK

TOGETHER

BIT BY BIT

DAY BY DAY

I WALK IT

IN THE CHOICES

I HAVE

AND

LET GO

OF THOSE

I DONT HAVE

OH TO THE

SHADES

WHERE IT IS

AND WHERE IT ISN’T

I TRIED

AND

ITS WHERE

IT IS

NOW

LISTENING

TO THE WAVES

OF SOUND

FLOWING IN

AND OUT

OF MY EARS

AND

EVERYTHING

ELSE

IS SO FREAKING

SILENT.

HOLDING ON...
