Notes on Silence

Temporary

Eternal

Waiting

For something

That isn’t

But could

Be

If the sky 

Turned off

The people floated up

The way of life

Ceased

For a moment

There were

Only intentions

That were pure 

And voices 

That were true

Eyes that were eager

And souls that were giving

We would turn around

Be seen

For the first time

In suspended animation

As it was meant to be

The pain would stop

But gravity is stubborn

Our skin 

Sagging 

As we wait for an event 

That can’t happen

Would have been the best thing

Tenderly giving

Just for the sake

Of seeing love

Through the moments of hardship

We run from what is given

Thinking what is good 

Is a trap

What is expected is too much

Should never stop

Muscles aching

Do you see the sky opening up?
