Silencing the loudness of the quiet


Quiet nights can be so loud


Continual replay of regrets echo each breath we take


Gasping for air, never able to exhale,

we try to fall asleep


But, the wish I's

I should have's

If I only's, drum loud


Night sweats, extreme insomnia, and surreal delineations almost take over


Until, suddenly, the loud nightly quietness of life's past comes to hiatus


We remember, we've deposited divulgence, along the way


some gewgaw

some dinkum


Most importantly, our petitions for forgiveness - Jehovah God, heard them all


Then, the loudness of quiet pillows to a heavenly balance


We rest in the sweetness of divine pardon, grace, and solace
