Hear the Silence

a poem by Abigail Fischer

Hear the silence
It’s deafening to me

The wind isn’t blowing
Encaptured in its own insanity
The leaves aren’t rustling
For they dream to be free
The grass moves not
Looking and longing at past memories

Hear the silence
It’s deafening to me

No child’s laughter
No warmth from the heart
Stands no other man
Ensnared at their start
No voice is from within
The silence has torn it apart

Lost the anger but also the guidance
Lost the enemies but also the alliance
Lost the will and show compliance
I have been consumed
Consumed by silence
