Silence Echoes

0 Comment

When posed with an option
To fill in a moment of silence
With words,
I ponder.

Does this need a response?
Do I need to respond?
Do I need to respond, now?

In many instances,
If all 3 are a “yes”
I will …

In most instances,
If 1 is a “no”
I will
Not respond.

Post a plethora of personal observations,
I Can say without a doubt
That the words I never said
Echo the loudest.

Great story-telling embraces
The Dramatic Pause;
The moment of emptiness
That fills in the void.

However, that same void
When not filled
From the same silence
Grows Exponentially.
