The Silence

by Brooke Powell

Your hands are cold for the first time.
Eyes wide open, barely breathing-
Young blood wide awake for the first time in forever.
Bedroom hymns echo better than a hallelujah,
One day more we’re pretending this is love.
It’s skin and bones to cover up a lost cause.
The way I loved you is a story of a girl long gone-
The greatest story never told,
Self-inflicted once upon a dream..
