I stopped speaking today.
Chattering one moment.
Not another word the next.
My silence, unmarked.
It simply didn’t matter.
Once I was full of things to say.
An effusion of phrase.
But my verbal energy is tapped
Sucked dry, my voice turned dust.
I am mute.
I had a presence.
My image has faded.
I am but a shadow.
Soon I will blend into the background.
And no one will remember I was ever here.

Hang on hang on the chances are 50/50 at the very least
a selfless act could change the face on everything.
