The Fall

So the sky fell.

It engulfed my dreaming
and with it

the clouds folded away

I stood there and wondered
why it happened

so peacefully

Nobody heard
the sound of falling skies!

and it fell before
many times

in everyone of us.

if you add all the noiseless sounds together
will it drown in silence

or will it speak of throe
in which they died?

I know
for I heard the noiseless
and counted the invisible

each time
I buried my shiver
to save it from explosion

Shhh....be quiet now.

Look at the stars
and save them all with you
until the next time

when the sky falls again.
