“Quiet” by Anonymous

not the absence of noise

but the silence after the rain

when all animals still shelter

not the shy girl in the hallway

but someone that was once a friend

with everything still left unsaid

not the wind in the trees

but the still air in the old house

the owners gone and the memories stale

not the end of your favorite tv show

but the click of a casket closing

as family members watch, remembering

not the comfort of night

but the ignorance of those privileged

enough not to be

alone
