Busy Mind #6

Silence has a sound? It does. When you want to hear from your lover and he doesn’t text or call, that is obnoxious silence playing on your fears whispering little arrows,”Ppsssst he really doesn’t care about you.” Silence has a sound. When you are waiting to hear back from your kid who is out and about and she fails to check in with you; silence is maddeningly poking your brain saying,” She’s in trouble. There was a terrible accident.She’s hurt and needs you.” Silence indeed has a sound.
