When Silence Speaks

Posted by on in Poetry

Your silence screams unspoken words that only I can hark

Bright flames of the past extinguished, the present seems so dark

Your lack of voice, words and speech are much too pain to bear

Day after day, night after night; do you sincerely not care?


Your silence penetrates so deep within, the deepest wounds seem shallow

It pierces sharper than the sharpest tool; I bleed dry on life’s gallows

Your lack of passion and purpose of life alarm me to no end

Gone is the trust, broken all ties; it is beyond any mend


Your silence rings clear and loud, like a warning in disguise

Enough of betrayal, those secrets and tales; enough of all those lies

Your lack of consideration, feelings and emotion numbs my mind from fear                                   

I cannot help but think this way: is the end all that near?


I refuse to lose hope, I refuse to give in

This unjust suffering! Oh, for what sin?

I’m clinging onto hope, though the future seems bleak

My thoughts will be heard and I shall speak

For it’s time to divorce fear, stand brave and tall

Tomorrow I’ll rise again, albeit just to fall 

I refuse to give up, though my efforts may be in vain

Tomorrow I’ll wake once more, albeit just to die again

I’m in this for real, and I will incessantly try

Tomorrow I’ll smile once again, albeit just to cry
