SIREN OF SILENCE

Shhhhhhhhhh
I shushed because I was shushed
Words swallowed
Lips mapped by the wind
Voice shadows,
Loudness of no sound
Persistence of a withdrawn culture
I can only hear with my eyes, am an amateur

The voice box waved
The tongue could not retort
shhhhhhhh, the thoughts will be saved
the heart race becomes a sport
Soundless, intricate disease
It is the speech of the eyes
left to reincarnate meaning
Your tongue is cunning

Tick tock tick tock
veins on the verge of explosion
The long wait of your say, around the clock
shhhh…speak without speaking
Nature abhors a vocal vacuum
Am waiting and waiting
Enough! quiet is the highest volume
Footsteps to an empty room
