The sound of the lifeless breathing

December 14, 2007
By Jaime Chapman, Ashland, KY

The sound of the lifeless breathing,
The fluttering of butterfly wings,
The beat of a dieing heart,
The whispering of mice,
The crisp air flowing.

You can’t catch a break,
The throbbing,
Yet calming,
Silence,
Silence,
Silence…

All you what to do is scream,
Your thoughts roam the room,
The elegant mind races,
To rupture the agonizing silence,
What to do,
You just need to speak.

Need to leave the cage of silence,
A prisoner of words.
