My silence is born
with me – within me
consoles me
all the time
And I used to love
This silence

but now, a thunderous silence
some unforeseen one
comes from nowhere
and tries to
break through my thoughts
and fills my mind and spirit

this silence speaks with me
in a language
that my heart interprets
but my mind
fails to relate

This silence torments me
day and night
with eyes that speak
I try to move away from it
But it fills my mind
With strange feelings
And with reflections of darkness
It attracts me to it.

with these disturbing thoughts,
I try to steal myself away –
inside myself, I try to take cover
And I cry silent tears
Unable to break away!

    beautiful 🙂

    i guess there are multiple meanings to this… atleast i interpreted it so.

    if the silence is a good one, then why fight… embrace it..

    i love this poem it’s so sad and it brings out your true emotion of how you feel and that’s what makes you a good poet
