Silence Holds Him Close

Silence Holds Him Close

Each petal that falls

Adds grace

Perfection falls between

Visited upon a blue velvet night

Fragrance permeates the air

It wafts to him

Taken up with thoughts

Of the past

Of her

The moon

In the hollow of his hand

It pulls him back

To a place of rest

Silence holds him close tonight

The history of pain

In his averted eyes
