Stillness

Stillness

This hollow feeling

A cathedral in my chest
Ceilings that vault
Extend to sightless heights
and leave so much empty space

Where my heart beats
Echoes
a melancholy tune of overtones
that resonate as they sing:
“Breathe out the sorrow that fills you
Empty your vaulting chest
Open your lips
and with a gentle sigh
let your breath
fill its chambers with stillness.”
