be silent, be still

be silent
be still
i retract into a place
deep within myself
slither away silently
leave no pretensions
or maledictions
as i leave, i cast
a shadow that takes my place
be silent
be still
i enter the cave with trepidation
my hand grazes the walls
my soul
my fingers whisper over my face
i leave a thin layer of dust
that leads you to me
be silent
be still
upon entrance to my tomb
be silent
be still
do not disturb me
be silent
be still
when you find me lying on the ground
as you look around this palace
with all the windows and doors broken
be silent
be still
as you approach me
do not worry; do not be afraid
i look to have a face of death
i am like a ghost
i am slight
but, be silent
be still
for you do not know
the strength within me
you cannot fathom
the depth you can reach
if you can only
be silent, be still
like a chorus ringing in deaf ears
do not question me
do not ask
do not pass yourself off
or proffer explanations
pretensions
just
be silent
be still
