The Deafening Silence



Into the vast blueness of space, I tore open my throat to scream. 

I wanted to know if I could become more resolute to keep my own self-esteem. 

After several attempts, what I heard was the drumming of my heart into my bloodstream, and the total silence of the blueness of dream.

I cried. 

I did not cry for the hoarseness of my voice, but for the God-given moment of seclusion and privacy in the blueness of sea. 

Lying inside the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, I looked at the levitating bubbles running toward the Yellow Fellow for their freedom, and perhaps for his tender embrace.

The water was warm. And I was warm. 

I finally failed to keep my own self-esteem. 

Floating in a deafening silence of the stream, covered by lots of sun cream. 

I stripped myself bare while I was swimming alone in the blueness of Summer’s dream.
