This is bliss

This is heaven

My lips are still

My mind is quiet

I nod and I smile

I wave and I giggle

Let others talk

While I sit there and “mingle”

I’m playing a game

A game without partners

The game that I love

“The quiet game” lover

Not sure if it’s right

Not sure if it’s healthy

But silence consumes me

It takes me and loves me

I am fed by the silence

Nurtured by quiet

Embraced by the stillness

In love with the nothing

Perhaps it is wrong

Pretending I’m nothing

Yet here I feel safe

Here I feel nothing

The quiet is special

Wants nothing from me

We sit without speaking

We sit in the silence
