What was said in your ear?

tell us all that you could hear

was it a whimper or a bang.

a secret or an oracle.

it must have been the Truth

nothing there is so cold

the body lies numb

no shiver could it hold.

you must have thrown a challenge

to the supreme heir

else lightening is His weapon

Satan could only bear.

if you were so meek

why did you reality seek?

He must have said

“Quiet it is to be kept”

soon realizing

man’s natural theft.

He took you away

with a secret

tell us

what was it.

Quiet is it to be kept?

trust me the world has slept.
