Silence {#Tuesday@Ten}

Silence…. the idea of silence, I long for

to be able to relax to the sound

of nothing

to curl up with a book and

finish it

to write


I long for it

and yet the actual reality of silence

frightens me.

It is so much easier

to drown out silence

to cover it with the white noise

the tv playing in the background

the music blaring

so i don’t have to hear

the silence.

To be alone

with my thoughts,

to have to listen to the inner voice

that speaks correction,



I blame it on the children

but now alone,

silence surrounds me

it frightens me

what I might hear

I am responsible for it

when I hear it

To know what I am doing wrong

Means I am responsible

to correct it

To know my deepest desires and see those dreams played out

Means I am responsible

to fulfill them

To hear instruction

Means I am responsible

for obedience to them

These are the things I fear

in the silence.
