Understanding Silence

share post

Listen to me, Lord,

in the words I don’t say,

the ones too terrifying

and terrified and stuck

to the roof of my mouth.

Hold me

in all my unspoken

shivering, the hope

that hangs by a

fraying thread.


under these

pillars of strength

I try and keep upright,

move me to accept

it is good if a few of

these facades crumble.

For You find me

in the rubble,

check the pulse

of my heart

and pull me to You,

where no words

are necessary,


an understanding
