“An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.” - Charles Bukowski


I live alone.

The home
that once felt so
crowded
now seems
colossal,
empty

Where is the
chaos
I once knew?

The quiet
scares me.

My mind
fills
the silence
with noise
that screams
louder

I tell myself
it's better.
That each
decibel
of that
chaos
was a
blade
shaking
in my head

but it's the
thoughts
in the quiet
that slice
deeper.
