Silence and Solitude

Silence and solitude

Seep into the marrow

Crawling through the bones

Swimming through the blood.

The eyes remain open

Attentive

The mouth remains shut

Silent.

The body walks along

An old deserted path

Known as home

Life

Family.

Faces stare out

Behind trees

On the ground

Half engulfed in shadows.

As the soul walks on

The faces turn

One by one

Away.

The eyes

Watch the forms

Glad of solitude

Yet scream in pain.

This path

Home

Family

Love

Life

Continues on

Faces lining the side

All

Turning

Away.

Silence and Solitude

Remain.
