Silence is the sanctuary of my soul.
It is the shell that turns sand into a pearl.
Within its confines, words lose meaning and become
the ripples that disturb the serene surface.
How lovely is this silence.
How fragile is the stillness.
I hide and burrow deeper in its comforts.
I see the world laughing and loving
and passing me by.
Yet, I bear the weight of silence,
my voice struggles beneath
the weight of its sweet seduction.
