Tranquil Love

a silence envelops me, deafening
my life has been filled with constant sound
until today
now i am left here at peace with myself,
with my eternal surroundings 
no need to fight, no begging to hide
i expose myself to the elements
a placid calm, drifting in sunlight
poised in waves, serene moonlight
tranquil whispers in my ears
is it you who calls to me so,
my love?
i would run to you,
but i can only float
and so i float
a silence once so blaring, 
is soothing
i cannot recall a time so simple
i do not ignore the rest of the world
i simply cannot hear them,
when you are near.
