Silence

By Sofia Sacre

Silence,
Silence does not exist in this world

It can never be quiet
It can never be still

You see my love
Silence does not exist
The water, it speaks to us

The wind replies back
A conversation is born
A Conversation exists

Listen,
It’s noisy, it’s loud

Listen well,
Your thoughts, your ideas, each has a sound

A unique sound
Music

To you,
Is it music, is it noise?
Hey!
Im speaking to you!

Listen!
It’s overwhelming the noise
It’s everywhere, sounds, music, notes
Music – what is music?

Notes?
Melody?
Footsteps?
Traffic
The River Flow
Everything

Everything is music, everything is noise

I Have a Broken Heart

By Sofia Sacre

I’ve broken my heart 
Once

It’s been broken before
Many times before 
But I’ve broken it once

I could almost hear it shatter 
Like glass against cement 
The sound of painful decisions

It will never truly mend 
This is a different kind of break
Self inflicted, more permanent

I broke another in the process 
Which I cannot repair 
It cut deeper than anything before

I broke my heart 
Once
And gave a piece away
