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.
