THE SILENCE

I listen to the silence
it is all around me
I try to block it
its too much for my frail soul
I put on the TV
and silence still rings loud in my head
I try to block it
for I think I am going crazy
for no one talks of hearing it
but I hear it
and I think I am going crazy
but again i think, haven’t
an infant heard silence when it suckled at it’s mother’s breast?
when a soldier waited for a war to begin?
when an artist waited to perform?
I am not crazy for
these days silence
speaks louder than words
hatred speaks louder than love
lies speak louder than truth
so it is possible silence speaks
louder than noise
I listen to the silence around me

  1. Isn’t it funnny that silence can be so loud….at night when most sounds are missing…you suddently hear the silence which wakes you from you sleep…well presented poem.

  2. Silence was never written down. ~Italian Proverb

    “im something, when u utter my name i will be no more”
