All is fine; I know.

Silence tells me so.

She is the gatekeeper of the fragile mind-

an appointed servant whose cruel betrayals

made peace impossible to find.

Once a traitor guard

who gave darkness entry to sacred ground,

she grew weary of unrest

and wished tranquility to be found.

So she is still.

No bribe does she take.

Perhaps she repents

for her past mistakes-

plagued with remorse

that her transgressions

were turmoil’s source.

Now a friend

No longer foe

All is well.

Silence tells me so.
