Sound of Silence….. By L D Wright

Have you ever heard the sound of silence?

No distracting beeps, engines, rushed footsteps, children’s tantrums, no interuptions just silently bliss silence.

Did everyone just fall asleep, did we all switch off and pressed reset. What’s this noise without voice or rumble.

Is silence the sound of peace that quietly surrounds or just a break in the daily madness we drown.

Have you ever been so deep into the woods the wind actually stops, the only noise is the birds but you can’t help listen to their glorious songs.

Every now and then I catch myself listening to the noiseless shock, silence waiting for the pin to drop.

The 4am visits, just me and my heart beat, slight rustle of the bedsheets.

It’s something you can’t really search yet it finds you the moment your not listening like it was patiently waiting to greet you.

That distant feeling when it all becomes so quiet, welcoming chances to deflect the hustle and bustle of everyday lifestyles.

Does silence truly exist or do we get lost in the daydreams, just forgetting as it fades into hushed seconds before life starts again.

Whatever it is, it’s welcome, this bedlam is deafening but so is the opposite.

Is silence just noise we simply haven’t heard yet.

Hi there, I'm Lee, I live in the UK in a small town called Blackburn. If I'm not working in the steel industry or training in karate, I'm out walking and taking pictures. I love taking photos and making them beautiful. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for a very long time. My writing run alongside my issues,  personal pitfalls, and experiences through life. Some experiences sad, some dark, but always honest. I treat my writing as my personal therapist., letting my thoughts out in words. This releases my inner demons and settles my personal head space.
