It’s the silence

the darkening silence
that holds nothing

not a word of hope
not a sound of love
not anything

the whole of heaven
has imploded
in this death

love has given everything
every last ounce of breath
love gave
and the world took

and all we have
is silence

that will not be filled
with clever theology
and wordy doctrine

love died today

the silence is heaven’s

for there is nothing there

it is empty

and it is all consuming



Good Friday
