If only I could drown all the noise all the time
maybe then will clearer pictures be drawn
about lifeless specimens floating across the room as toilet paper rolls hanging by the handle…

if only I could concentrate on the beats of my heart
I could slow it down whenever the coffee hits and I see you smile…
just that image I saved in my head is enough

If only I could spell love in pints of blood
or the veins under my skin could form the alliance to help grow the army needed to fight off all the…


I wonder if sounds ever stop
Like how you die when you hold your breath

if only I could stop time, like when the words were first spoken and frames froze
and all I could remember is

I love you more than any word can describe

If only love could heal you,
I'm sure you would never be sick!

Author's Note
Silence is written about the moment when I felt tears flowing over my skin hoping to keep faith alive. It is when I knew love existed inside of me and that I would never die, because love remains.

This poem finally finalized on the day 4 years ago I published my first poetry book, Love Affair, in 2018.
