If silence could be captured.
Kept in a glass jar,
Opened every time the soul
Needed to hear it’s voice.

If silence could be held in words
Then this distance between you and me
Would perish in no time
If silence could be kissed all the time.

But it eludes like a lover
Loses itself only to lure again
Silence intoxicates and leaves my pen shuddering
As I seek to hold it in a cage.
