STILLNESS

through the constant chatter
whirring engines
humming machines
incessant ringtones
stillness settles in her heart
calming the wave of panic
barring the surging swell of desolation
she walks through the pandemonium
wrapped in fragile composure
pushing the weeks to end, the months to disappear
prodding Time to heal with light’s rapidity
her glass world is lulled by the rhythm of the world not her own
no time for tears
she keeps pace with the symphonic din
to outdistance the pain
to keep the stillness in her battered heart
