Between the silences

Between the silences I exist

The sounds of children, life, love and lust persist

Coffee brewing, conversation flowing, sunlight pouring into our souls

Here I am content

Here I am content

Between the silences I am alive

Un-paused, animate, wired and live

Soaking in the frequency of life

I will survive

I will survive

Between the silences

Thoughts are lucid

Between the silences

I am free

Between the silences

I am me

In the silence I am still

I've no desire, no will

I've closed my eyes and cannot see

I've disappeared

In the silence

I am no more

I am inanimate and desolate

In the silences you are cruel beyond belief

In the silences you are entitled

In the silence

I am alone

Between the silences I wish to remain

I wish to be the king of my domain

I wish for the summer breeze and the starlit nights

Between the silences I wish to remain

The softened highlights of sun scorched hair

The bronzed and sea salt licked skin

The laughing faces lit by fire light

The sleepy mornings, groggy and filled with potential

It is between the silences life truly begins

Thanks rose! It's been a while since I have written. Needing to get back to it. Nice to see someone posts something on it within minutes of it going up!

thank you tobusiness!

Another written off the cuff. Most of my better received poetry is done in a moment. The less thinking the better. Otherwise I'd never get it down... simply edit til eternity.
