El Silencio/Silence
Ramon Piero 6/29/20

its them again. i
hear them
talking all
at once.
Hard to
make out
just exactly
what they
want.
This Time.

its them again. i
cannot seem
to listen to
anything else.
They are
drowning out
the me
or is
it really
me,
trying to
get through
unable to
make my
own
voice
heard,
through the
din of the
daily madness
I see
every day.

its them again. i
believe that
that its them
again.
what else
could it
be.

i crave
silence;
I need
silence
I need
to be able
to hear
el silencio
the silence
drowned out
by the
voices
yelling
and screaming;
demanding
attention.
I need
the braying
to stop.

its them again. i
can hear them
in my sleep
i hear them when
i wake;
I hear them
now,
as I type
getting in the
way
getting
more
and more
anxious
since I am
ignoring
them

i crave
silence;
I want
all of
them to
go away.
they get
in the way
of
el silencio
I cannot
work
whist they
yell
and scream;
i cannot be
at peace,
not knowing
what they
want.
