The Book Life

4.12 | April 13, 2010

The water wants to tell you
that whispers are truer
than most other sounds,
because they are lower and closer
to silence. For the water,
the goal is utmost
stillness, silence an unachievable
dream, like the dream
of not being alone, for us.
The quieter you
speak to me, the more I will
believe you, because like water
I aim for stillness, to not
have to move.
