Illusion

Written by: Crystal Wilkins

The world seems so quiet
The world seems so still
But is it ever silent
When my heartbeat goes on
The world is always moving

A silent deep breath
Of time passing by
Silence fills my ears
Nothing left to hear

I hear nothing
The world, empty
It’s a lie

Not empty
Not silent

Illusion
