Silence

I can
stop talking
I feel
relief
relief at not having to be so
careful in case the words
offended
relief at not having to engage
the mind
relief at being able to
relax
relief at just
being
me
in company with another and
silent
because I
want to
not
because I am told to
a big
difference
relief
I can choose
relief
I can choose
silence

Artist's Description

Some time ago, when visiting a then lover, I requested a day of silence. I found it profoundly liberating. To my surprise, it was my lover, not I, who had difficulty with the process, even though he had often been critical of my blurtings. We are still friends, but no longer lovers.
