Hush

black-grass-wallpaper-1280x1024This silence is complete
Dominant in its simplicity
Exacting in its truth
Devastating in its ruin
Consuming like the night
It inhabits the corners
Like a diabolical thief
Dispersing cold shadows
And merging with the light
Tuned to this frequency
Constant and overwhelming
Blinding in its depth
Shallow in its melody
Hiding in perfect sight
Plain and unassuming
As cunning as a mouse
Darting from its dark hole
Passing through silhouettes
Of this masquerading death
These solemn, hushed tones
Sounding in unison
Waiting for the time
Between drops of rain
When the world is bone dry
Then noise cold like the grave
Is buried six feet deep
Between this damp earth
And the promise of unending sky.
