Teacher

you are so still
it goes deep, too
all the way in
and it frightens me
the chaos in my spirit
the constant murmuring
clamors to fill up the empty
I purse my lips and will myself to listen
you are telling me something
I can almost hear it
my spirit trembles
a panic
you smile and something snaps
way inside
and the silence
and still
becomes a warm and friendly thing
you put your arms around me
and I can breathe again
