Deafening Silence

Most spend our life listening to things around us
Even without thinking about it we hear so much
And when we are confronted with no sight or sound
We often revert to thinking with only a touch.

If you’ve spent time in the city during the rush
You know the sounds that scream from everywhere
Compare that to a blanket by a country stream
And you can tell from a distance if someone is there.

So it is with the sound of someone we desire
When they are near we are almost in a trance
But when they pull away and are gone for a time
We listen so intently, almost as a deafening silence.

Each can have a different reason for being withdrawn
Whether needing the time to our self to ask “Why”
But as we try to reason on the silence of another
We want more to break that silence than our own sigh.
