Silence elegy

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

Many today are lost in a maze Getting caught in a purple haze Wake up late to one of those days Inside we hide behind four walls that bind Yet we are still being crafted in an elegant design Cold


Silence long poem

Silence It’s only when they can’t see, That’s when the tears runs heavy. In the silence i make no sound Though everyone is around. It’s goes on for hours into the next day And the tears still flow anyway I


Silence short poem

Silence. He could but dread the feel of it The disturbing silence of children back home as adults Even the sub conscious silence of heavy steps in his broken world of isolation The mocking silence of the crumbled currency lying

Deep Love In Silence

Deep Love In Silence long poem

Those days, not gone, still within me, Full of love, my mad love-scenes, With fantasies, and fallacies of colorful days, We paved through narrow, secluded streets, Shady meadows, gardens, water-falls, Pubs and coffee-club cabins, you and me, In deep love;
