In the title and the last two lines I hear a perfect poetic statement,
distilled to the essence. Sorry for taking liberty but, I hear strength in your honesty as below. I think each of us looks to hear ourselves revealed in another’s work. Those lines could not be closer to thoughts I have felt so I hear them alone, as the most relevant.
“I am not entirely sure
that I desire silence
but sometimes I look at stillness
and I think
that is what I want”
