The Enormous Silence

The Enormous Silence

And now the enormous silence
Dark clouds, dark day, dark eyes
Stare back from my watery mirror.

The silent treatment.
Bitter medicine
heals neither of us.

No malice of forethought.
No premeditation.
Only the criminal called best intent.
Walks quietly on the road to hell

That is this enormous silence.

    I have walked this path. It damn sucks. Period. In this case, the silence spoke way, way louder...excellent piece! Oh, nice to meet you! :)

    Thank, Drake. I am in hell, honestly, waiting for boyfriend to stop the silent treatment. I'm 53-- I'm thinking maybe alone is better...
