Poetry Tuesday – The Underbelly of Silence

The underbelly of silence

Rests on easily breakable

Peace of mind,

Which when shattered,

Reveals utter quietude,

Driving the brain to darkness

And insanity.

Silence, it seems,

Rests too heavy then.

Voices stay forever confined

Within the bounds

Of our unknown parts

Of our imaginations.

Cynthia Hilston is a thirty-something-year-old stay at home mom of three young kids, happily married. Writing has always been like another child to her. After twenty years of waltzing in the world of fan fiction, she finally stepped away to do her debut dance with original works of fiction. In her spare time – what spare time? – she devours books, watches Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, pets her orange kitty, looks at the stars, and dreams of what other stories she wishes to tell.  
