i've never known absence and i've never tasted agony
and i've never known emptiness to feel so full and encompassing
so utterly prominent and misleading of its definiton
much like the silence
for i've never known silence to be so deafening
so loud
so resounding
so vile
where it echoes and ricochets and i am deafened
and there is no peace
no calm and no stillness and this isn't quiet
this is misery
for i've never felt air so heavy
so suffocating
so vicious
where i gasp and heave and i cannot breathe
i cannot breathe
i cannot breathe
