THE SILENCE

Like the break between rainfalls,

Or the calm before the storm,

We brought the silence.

 

Like those moment between breaths,

Or the fear of the dark,

We brought the silence.

 

Like the creak of an empty home,

Or the rage of a kind man,

We brought the silence.
Like the seconds before an earthquake,

Or the fury of a wave,

We brought the silence.

 

And now that it is here,

Imprisoned by terror and depression,

We wish we had never brought the silence.

 

Hello everyone,

I was thinking about the events of the Orlando Shooting, and the microseconds between bullets being fired and the death of their targets, or the minutes of quiet after the shooting stopped and people finally bled out, and this is what came out of it. Let me know what you think.

One thought on “THE SILENCE

  1. Such a sad silence that can never be undone. A horrible act of violence. It’s hard to believe this event occurred. The perspective presented makes one stop and think about the need do more to stop the callous violence associated with guns…. My heart goes out to those lost…
