in the absence of silence

the mind dances

to rhythms sharp

deep

intricately woven

patterns of noise

blending

together

a child's cry

a mothers lament

joyous laughter

cries of pain

all merge

form

a mosaic of life.

 

in the absence of silence

the pain of lovers

lost

yields to

beauty found

in their last

embrace

the sound

of their hearts

beating

as one

across the void

inseparable

their cries

in the darkness

blend

their pain

slowly

vanishing

the remembrance

of a last

kiss

quietly tucked away

in the corners

of their minds.

 

in the absence of silence

a new day dawns

quietly

at first

gaining momentum

tearís

joys

begin their dance

as one

the world

revolves

the universe expands

truth becomes

the eternal

quest

the lovers

the child

a mourning mother

cries

they call out

to the darkness

where all

can clearly hear.
