Vibrating silences

When words were newly invented

In spite of real hearing impairment or faked

The magic of no words to modulate

Whispering and signs

Flamboyant hands to speak

Whispers and fresh kisses to start

Two decades ago when language changed

Hearing was ok but faking it was better

The magic of vibrating silences

Blocked out voice and throbbing signs

The loudest fingertips to speak

Non stoppable chattering lips

After a day of sore throat and being hoarse

Only hearing while the others were filling up the seemingly endless silence

I’ve started remembering the thrill of being silent, vibrating through so longed silences
