The Silent Darkness

I am not asking have you listened somewhere quiet

I am not asking can you hear as much

As the deaf

I am asking you

Can you hear the silence

That deafening nothing that cannot be withstood

That sound that falls on earth owned by those beneath it

As birds stop singing and trees no longer rustle you must

Scream scream scream

For it is coming

For ears deaf and lendable alike

Can you hear it yet

———————————————————————————————————————————–

I am not asking can your vision cut through the dark

I am not asking what mechanical goggles or animal eyes can see

Upon the night’s descent

I am asking you

Can you see the darkness

Are you able to watch it siphon street lamps

And sabotage the sleep of children

This is beyond the absence of sun

This is where we drown

When there is no light to behold

Even the blind can succumb to the sight

Can you see it yet
