The Sound of Silence

Silence
My opinions are not the norm.
Silence
A break before the storm
Silence
A deep and navy blue
Silence
That question you ask, with who
Silence
I’m not going to cry
Silence
But it’s the sound of that final goodbye.

This poem was actually written for a friend whose parents are currently going through a divorce. She told me “the silence in this house seems to scream louder than words”. I took that and made it into this poem.
