Facing Silence. (Hi Silence, this is me, what are you?)

Silence. 

WHAT THE DICTIONARY* DESCRIBES SILENCE AS: 

1si·lence

WHEN I TRY TO DESCRIBE SILENCE OUT OF THE BLUE:

It is a action/non-action that could mean more than spoken words. I feel that when I face something as vague and as powerful as it, I have to rely on something that isn’t there. Sometimes silence can mean a question that is left unanswered.  It could mean a question I don’t want to answer, or to be answered. Silence is what happens when the world is still and discoveries are waiting to be made. Silence is what happens when you don’t know what to say and your fingers are tingling with electricity. Silence is what happens when you are screaming on the inside, but can’t form any audible words. Silence is what happens when two people use their minds and eyes to speak, but not their mouths. Silence is Awkward. Silence is Grave. Silence is Great.
