Silence

Being up on an open mic so much actually inspired this one. Where this is kinda like the feeling that I get after I walk off after I've spoken a poem. I'll leave it to the reader. Comments are open.

Silence

Silence

Everyone
Is holding
Their breath.

The cigarettes
Dangle
From their lips.

Everyone
Is watching
The stage.

Everyone
Does not know
What to think.

They came
To see
But forgot
To think.

The sap
Is running
From their skulls.

They only
Believe
In what they’re
Shown.

A man
Of ragged
Dressing
Walks on-stage.

He put on
A Spectacular Performance
Yet he only
Spread his arms
Wide apart
To tell them
That he is
Their God.

Everyone
Forgot
How to breathe.

For it is like
Watching the bomb
Drop.

The Cigarettes
Dangle
From their mouths.

The man
On stage
Smiles
For he knows
He got
What he wanted.

And his Audience
All stares at him
In a silent
Standing Ovation.

And yet
No one
Blinks
An eye.

The man knows
That he has them.
