POEM: The silence of friends

Is the silence deafening?
You seem anxious as you sprinkle your words in the stillness of this quiet room.

Is the silence comforting?
You seem peaceful as I watch you float from this place to a private world of your own.

Is the silence beautiful?
You seem pleased as you share this moment of quiet contemplation.

Is the silence painful?
You seem yourself though you mask fears of things unknown.

Is the silence painful?
You seem composed though you hold back turbulent rivers that urge to flow.

Is the silence painful?
You seem patient though you silently fight the persistent need for noise...
