Enough

written by: Ximena Escobar

@laximenin

 

Silence finds me,
or do I find silence,
it’s me who steps out
through a curtain of transparency
and seeks her,
Where the wind is blowing
Where peace is lain like the surface of stillness,
My tranquil cup with all its landscape
whispers
I contain mountains
But time always comes
when time is over,
a gust of train-wind forces us to turn
(here,
is where I want to stay)
I fall in the sand slide
Step
into the thunderous rattle of silence
raping me, stake of coolness shaking
cracking, breaking, it opens me
so
she can bounce inside me and shake me
Rise,
is my voice
erupting in Scream
Birthed,
by the concave end of a moment
I roll
on the concrete edge of a platform
Breathe,
Enough
is enough
