The deafening of silence

Who cheers for the cheerleader?
Who encourages the optimist?
Who gathers the fragments of the imploded?

Not unlike a star that goes through the throes of its demise – contracting and collapsing in on itself.

Who will bear witness to its finality?

As white dwarf…

Dimming, cooling and a shell of its past glory.

No one.

When silence ceases to be deafening, it becomes instructive.
