The afternoon is eerily silent,
Exuding the aura of an upset tyrant.
The air is thick with more than just a lack of words,
Because silence does speak louder than words.
Silence is not always the best option;
But, often it is the best answer for lack of a better option.
Or, perhaps silence is the best aid for patience
Especially, when someone is really trying my patience.
Like it or not, silence causes no harm;
Much like this afternoon that it fails to charm.
