Sweet Silence

Hush baby

now don’t say a word,

let the secrets of the night fill you.

Quietness falls upon my lips,

the bitter sweetness of this moment

is all I can taste, is all I can breathe.

Hush …. Hush

Curtains closed,

darkness finally consumes me

and the dreams,

they come one by one.

I allow the silence

to have its space

between these four walls.

Hush now …. don’t say a word.
