She Knows Nothing of This

I don’t think she knows this peace

It comes with the sitting.

The solace, the silence speaks 

Days of droning about, no end to celebrate

I search for refuge. It comes at the end of 

a boredom that strangles my day. Aghast in 

delight at something new, shiny. A golden

gem of the night. Glows in solitude. Shines

a contrasting light, a sharp shadow

in bold relief. Scorned upon my brow. Peace

delivers a solace, a contentment at my doorstep. 

She knows nothing of this.

This comes with the cracks, the splinters in 

ankles and the sharp shards of ancient bone.

A tattering, worn like thistles and thorns. Peace 

delivered in silence, a throne at my door.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
