Silenced Was Silenced 

She came and she left out of the blue
Where'd you go ? 
I might have done something crude 
She said, "No"
But I heard, "Yes "

Pressed against the trembling bed
And under the crying sheets 
Her pleads buried  
Into  two dark pits

In the dark space nothing was to be heard 
Silence was silenced 
In her frightful, inert stare 
The light of innocence hushed 
 
The minute-hand came alive 
But the moving satin-hill did not 
Slow, peaceful thumps interrupted the night
And with tranquility the door was shut
