The accompanying poem is as follows:

Silence,
A journey into the space of a moment...
...or an eternity.
As infinite space echoes sound through the seemingly empty vacuum,
The space between ourselves is indeed a blessing...
...or a curse.
When silences are perceived through the boundless waves of conscious reality,
Spaces become smaller...
...and yet more infinite.
