Silence

Clicked pause
Stopped the day
And decided I needed
To restart
Thoughts lurched
And yawn hissed
Between clenched teeth
Looked up at the ceiling
And wondered
If I could just lay there
All year
The days stained my legs
With passing light
And the shadows
Tattooed upon my skin
Sometimes
I didn’t want to move
Floated in my bed
Waiting, waiting
For my name
To escape my lips
