Silence Is Premeditated: A Collection
Silence Is Premeditated explores the duality of the human soul: the black and the white—and the gray area in between.
“It Can Only Be Seen In Darkness”
Once, during daylight hours
Niles heard strange noises
inside the walls of the church:
sighing and whistling?not
the sweet, melodic kind but
the perverse kind, followed by
cat-calls and wheezing.
The sounds made his neck muscles
stiffen, his flesh crawl, and his saliva
burn metallic from fear. He ran.
Safely outside, he caught a whiff
of something sour as the rear door
swung shut. He never wanted to step
inside of that church again.
