Silence

The usual noise of the city beats

Not heard of today.

Today, empty are the streets

Lazy was the day.

The usual crowd are not seen

They’ve taken their long weekends

Such a change of scene.

The busy city is silent.

Safe Room

I stay in my room where I’m safe

I’m safe

I’m safe.

I stay there to have space and time for myself

Myself

Time for myself.

I used to breathe around the house

Stretch

Relax

And just be still in the silence and rudimentary life.

Now I stay in my room trying to keep the noise out

Drown it all down.

So I stay in my room

The only place I feel safe.

And Then I Was Mum

I used to see beauty and color in everything

Used to hear music and the joy it brings

I talked about the lovely moon

The song of the stars and so on

.

But they shamed me

Shunned me

Condemned my poetic dreams

So all of a sudden and all at once, I became mum

.

Now in the silence, they reach out for me

But I am gone, nowhere to be

They will hear no more

I am mum from them, forever

“Wake Up”, Said The Stars

The fan turned on I woke up suddenly
The silence, if you’d believe it, woke me
Not a sound could be heard or at least I can hear
Is it just me or have I gone deaf? I feared
But then I saw the tranquil sky
So I sat down and wondered why
Why the stars woke me and shook me awake
They new I still had work, for goodness sake!
But then they sparkled and twinkled
And suddenly I remembered
I missed having these rare moments were I’m alone
And just looking at the stars on my own
