Riley welch is a poet from texas living in Denver. She posts three original poems a week. 


There is never silence.
I am never in silence.
When I do think I am in silence.
My ears ring.
And echo.
And make up pitter-patters that
do not even

Because my brain doesn't sleep
so my ears can never rest
in fear
it'll all
shut off.
