ENVELOPED IN SILENCE

Let us take

 

A read trip

 

From being me

 

From being you

 

Leave phones and social media behind.

 

Leave them.

 

Leave fake names and pics behind;

 

Leave what has pained us.

 

Don’t you think we need a break

 

From them

 

From us…with us?

 

We can be silent together;

 

Two silences no one can sense…

 

Enveloped in silence, just

 

Our two voices quiet.

 

How far can we go

 

Before we no longer exist

 

Except as beams of light—

 

You one beam, me another.

 

Do you suppose that if

 

It is to be us,

 

It needs us?

 

That it need contain us?

 

If yes, then let us flee;

 

Pretend we exist but are lost…

 

Individuals indivisible invisible

 

To all between sea and heaven;

 

Only we see each other.
