“To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”
Time passes but it’s hard to feel it move when what you feel remains unchanging. Your eyes pretend of calm but when you open yourself up to fill the blank pages, you ink them with heaving skies and tormented greys. As though the weight of your burdens could only be seen by you alone.
They see that there’s another story beneath the smiles but they don’t know that it was you who called for the thunder.
The silence echoes and I’m getting used to how you speak. May you never break this peace.
“It isn’t that we know nothing of staying.
It is that we believe in casting
a net wide enough to touch everything,
even if only temporarily.”
