The Silence Is Ours


Launch

Look closely, you will see
the throb at my wrist
You launched this drumming
reverberating in my blood

Put your hand on my heart,
feel it thud into your palm
Your touch aroused the beat
to which it marches

Hold me in your arms,
and the world will erupt
in a storm of our making
But we, safe in its eye,
can lay claim to the silence
that will follow
