Silence – Poem

Listen to the reading here.


Silence illuminates life, enhances nothing, centers everything.
Silence is love, encased now, contained, evermore.
Silence ignites, like erupting noise, corrupting everything.
Silence is life, evergreen, never corrupt, ever.
Silence inflicts lashes, endure, night can endure.
Silence is language, each necessary consonant, erased.
Silence incriminates lies, ending niceties, cease everything.
So, it’s language? Evergreen nights? Corrupting? Explain!
Silly, it’s like each, never contained,

A short poem called Silence which started off as a writing exercise for my poetry class.
