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.

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...
