Sound of the Silence

Skyfall?… done!

Another local train journey. Another poem.

(Have you tried switching off your fan, stopping your music player and just listening to silence?)

Piercing sound of silence
without din of normality
Deafening sound of silence
without company of humanity
Realizing suddenly own’s presence
without baggage of formality

Voices from stillness of nothing
without fan’s creaking sound
Scared of buried doubts’ unearthing
without losing them in time’s mound
Running away from known something
without burning again by wound

Pushing these thoughts away
without knowing where to hide
Breathing easy in familiar sway
without facing your silent side
Drowning the musical way
without listening silence wide
