Haibun, Poetry by Sarah

Silence

It’s whirling again, my mind. I can’t help it, it just is. “I hear you!” I scream. “All right!” I agree. “Shut up!” I plead. And yet it goes on, and on. I feel it, deeply, the withdrawal…as I sink into the dark recesses of my thoughts. They’re unruly now; untamed, and relishing in the freedom I have allowed them. The more I say “No”, the more they say “Yes, let’s tell her again”. Their truths are untruths. I know it and yet I don’t. I bend to the sounds of the unkind and unfair. Unrelenting and unwieldy these thoughts bear down on me. An incessant chatter when all I want is silence. Oh please let there be silence.

Hush now, time for rest.
When Summer seems far away
Look for the sunshine.

  1. Too often left alone those voices in our head converse.
    Not always saying things we want to hear.
    Like in the night when one can’t sleep, distraction, even with some noise might be called for.
    Positive thoughts for someone else might create a symphonic reverb to settle our inner strife.
    Your piece describes accurately that internal battle we often have, sometimes even in a crowded room.
