No One Noticed The Noise – Lynn White

A seeming of quiet

Brave & Reckless

She lay there still
quiet in her bones
quiet in her flesh
but her heart was drumming
loudly
and her head was screaming
louder
still
still
her bones
and flesh
were quiet.
The parts that can be seen
were quiet.

So no one noticed the noise.
