The Thick Sound of Nothing

I think
it was so quiet
that the thick
sound
of nothing
woke me

that sleeping room
filled
with silence
stillness
so empty
it was heavy
a velvet blanket
enfolding all
in hush

my chitter thoughts
tested
ears searched the chasm
there must
be
just a trace
of sound

but no
and yes
there was
nothing
spread thick
like a salve
pure pause
enveloped
suspended
me
in silence

really
there was no sound
but for my
bewildered
mind
teetering
so close
to being
soothed
by nothing
