Silence embraces,
I pull back
Like he might be a gift
That I can’t accept. 
Too precious 
And I am unworthy.

I make him my enemy

Turn my back,
Switch on the hum
That beckons.
A world that buzzes busy
Hushes Silence.

Silence does not pursue
Retreats to distant places
I feel regret
For gifts rejected.
He was beauty
And he slipped away.
