FRIGHTENED OF SILENCE

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

Frightened of silence

the blank space

is quickly filled up

& covers

with fast words

& convenient thoughts

 

Emotionally scarred

& scared of the truth

I hide the nothingness

of a blank page

with jargon of a would be poet

Auspicious. Filling silence with noise! Blanks demand filling. :D
