The heavy silence begins

Following the crisis

That unearthly quiet starts

When a mind stops


Haunting your being

Quite an eerie feeling

Taunting the throng

Without a warning


It attacks your mind

Like no other kind

Bitter to the rind

Leaving you in a bind


It creeps in darkness

Where it thrives

As sharp as knives

It hits as it aims


There is little retreat

Or path to beat

If success is met

Quiet will repeat


The time to think

Or even to drink

Go to the clink

Or over the brink


Quiet is the load

Along our road

It’s presence rued

Or maybe pursued


No enemies lie there

For us to fear

Only what we bear

Is in that bare lair


An uneasy loss

Of time and bliss

Is found in silence

Of the uneasy darkness

They say silence is golden but I've never believed it. Silence during a storm is a warning to duck and cover. Silence during a hurricane is a warning to hunker down for the other side. Silence never really exists....
