#silence

Audre Lorde

We can learn to work and speak when we are afraid in the same way we have learned to work and speak when we are tired. For we have been socialized to respect fear more than our own needs … and while we wait in silence for that final luxury of fearlessness, the weight of that silence will choke us.

I’d rather be a lover than a fighter

Cause all my life, I’ve been fighting

Never felt a feeling of comfort, oh

And all this time I’ve been hiding

And I never had someone to call my own, oh nah

I’m so used to sharing

Love left me alone

But I’m at one with the silence.

I found peace in your violence

Can’t tell me there is no point in trying

I’m at one and I’ve been quiet for so long

Mary Balogh, from The Last Waltz
The silence extended between them. A silence that was gradually filled with unspoken words, almost as if their minds connected though they did not speak.

It seems like a contradiction but to create silence in a story, you need sound. So while, ‘Silence descended as he entered the room’ is okay, ‘Only the soft hum of the fan broke the silence of the room and then it, too, became still’ works better.
