Treasure Island

Erik Gillette


Silence


Have you sat in darkness and heard the silence around?
Its as though it engulfs you
a place of utter terror
Silence pierces your ears swiftly leaving you unknowingly deaf
Listen
as it rises above all sounds
encroaching you
It feels like ice all around you
Silence will petrify you
make you hurt
silence is like death
you are unable to escape it
it follows you everywhere
creeping
crawling
Its powers are like non other
Silence is feared
Silence is known
Silence is known
but no one truly knows silence
It eludes our comprehension
beyond our threshold of understanding
It sits in wait
lurking
wondering itself
What does silence truly sound like?
