I love silence
I mean i like that I can say, think, spell the word silence
but still not have silence
silence shouldn’t exist as a word in the first place
it’s one of those things you are supposed to have without knowing that you have it in the first place
that’s an absolutely charming idea:
to have something without knowing that you have it.
like having the best pie in the world and not knowing
like seeing the most amazing sunset and not even realizing it
like having the most beautiful ears and hiding them
like having the moment of your life and forgetting it.
sometimes the silence comes like raindrops on a summer evening
unexpected but welcome.
silence steals moments here and there
when first time lovers were inside each other for the first time
when the flag is raised to raise your patriotism
when a worm is about to turn into a butterfly
when one gives up his last breath
when you are about to collide and you see your life flash by
when you check inside yourself and find nothing
silence disrupts and interrupts life for a little while
it gives you time to hold still before moving
to turn your tongue seven times before speaking
to check right and left before entering traffic
to listen before you speak
to have a one on one moment with yourself before you meet the world.
