Some of us get used to the silence.
Some of us don’t.
The voice I loved the most, is forever gone.
And it’s silence is deafening.
I call out to him,
Hoping for an answer.
But there is no voice in return.
So I scream my loudest, blood-curdling scream.
And weep.


The silence is deafening because,
His touch was lost within the night.
I reach out over the bed for his hand,
But there is no hand to grab me back.


The silence is deafening because,
I long for three words.
The three words I didn’t hear.
And took for granted.
But I’ll say them every night to the wind,
Hoping that gravity forces them up towards the clouds.


The silence is deafening because,
The only thing I hear at night are my sobs,
Begging for someway for him to come back.
I barter. I would trade my life.
But he would only be going through my misery.


The silence is deafening because
When these four walls start to constrict me;
All I hear is the beating,
And the crickets are humming the prologue of lament.
Because, I now know what is to be alone... and incomplete
That, is why this silence is deafening.
The love of my life is forever gone.

Unfortunate things happen, it is the way that you carry yourself through them that matters.
