Silence


Silence

I am afraid to sit in silence
I run from the quiet
The fear of letting my mind drift
Where would it land in the abyss
I fear that darkness
It is one I haven’t been able to harness
The questioning of all that I believe
The wondering if the person I am is really me
Or better yet, the person I should be
I don’t find peace in quiet
The quiet…
is where my thoughts begin to riot.
