Quite Now


When I shut my mouth
The world falls to pieces
When you shut me off
The space is filled
With things unsaid

When you shut your mouth
The world falls to pieces
When I shut you down
The space is filled
With things I can’t hear

Just because I’m not talking
Doesn’t mean I’m dead
Silence isn’t a curse
It’s a blessing in my head
At least I get a second to catch my breath

When I shut my mouth
The space is filled
With vibrant sounds
my world will tear down
but at least I get to watch it fall

When you shut your mouth
the corners of the room will close in
with haunting sights
and things unknown
but at least you get to watch it go

Silence isn’t a curse
It’s a blessing underread
We don’t need to fill the space
With bitterness
Sometimes it pays to let the air speak

When I shut my mouth
We hug it out
With warmth in cold
It’s spreading out
but at least I get to watch if fade

When you shut your mouth
Sweet silence dances on lips
And over delights
It’s oversweet
But at least you get to watch it play

No Silence isn’t a curse
It’s not filled
With awkwardness
Sometimes it takes
Silence to end the night

When I shut my mouth
I breath it in
The smell of bed sheets washed
and furry cats
But at least I get to watch it spread

When you shut your mouth
The words expressed
Can never mount
The scene around
But at least you get to take it in
