Silence elegy

Photo by MikeBlogs

Sometimes I think
about everything
and in my wonder all my thoughts they do shudder
a neurological network gone asunder

a beautifully terrible bundle of fibers my Mind carefully stutters
an enemy larger than life, yet a friend which could save thee from strife
it all is my Mind, a bittersweet device

I plea and I bargain, lifeless like earth with no air
I beg for your words, for life lies within there
yet when you finally do speak, refuge I must seek
I hold no true fear other than my Mind when it speaks

the darkness is safer, a place of relief
the battles are over
how could I love such defeat?
a price I cannot pay, when you demand my beliefs

don’t bother me now
don’t send your words nigh
I have sought you once before
but in doing so one surely must die
after much resistance I realized that it surely is I

silence now
we need not speak
though a partnership would take us from common men to kings
You and I cannot exist as one entity, for your words they do kill

Weaving Silence

Weaving Silence short poem

Do I have a choice before knifing the page for a meaning, when I was drowned in a nostalgia? Cinchona bark. This was my keyword for living bitterly under a tryant inciting the riots of colors. The digital death comes

In Silence

In Silence short poem

It’s here, and then it’s not. That untimely moment that we fear our minds have just ‘forgot’ who we are, and why we’re here. Why did we never reach that bar? We’re no longer our own puppateer. In the past

Silence Ain’t Always Golden

Silence Aint Always Golden short poem

I chose silence not because I didn’t have an opinion. I chose silence not because I didn’t have thoughts. I chose silence not because I couldn’t express my feelings. I chose it… because that’s the only option I had! I

As I Sit In Silence

As I Sit In Silence short poem

As I sit, in silence, With just my soul, I can see the present, More so, than ever before I feel as if I was just born, Unto the mother’s breast All fresh and new, Wrapped in pink, The unconscious

Wordless Silence

Wordless Silence short poem

Yes, your name was sliced off from the impasse. I will stand with you to track the continental drift. How little I knew about you and the prosthetic words. Again and again I return to ruins, and the dust and
