Dear Silence

Dear Silence short poem

Photo by ibkod

You have been my greatest friend,
Yet always hard to control.
I seek you out often and
you always heed my call.

I can be with you
even when everyone is around.
When we are together
I can mute out all the other sounds.

When I feel I am in control
you flip things around.
Though, I can block out the outside revelry
in my mind clamour abounds….

Lost in my thoughts and daydreams
absorbing nature, that’s all around.
You and me together
we can hear the unheard sounds.

The songs that are sung
by the stars, the moon , the clouds.
The songs sung by the azure blue skies
Some mellifluous, some loud

We see the shiny reflection of
the cloudy blue sky.
In the shimmering aqua pools
and hear the babbler’s cry.

Together we tune into
the secrets of our realm.
There is so much to decipher
with you at the helm.

Many times I wish to be alone
and spend every moment with you.
But there are times you seem like
heavy, dark sky with sad bluish hues

Then you start to feel oppressive
and make me seek out noise.
I get this urge to be distanced from you
And give my thoughts a voice.

Dear pole star, I dedicate this to you, Because in my mind lies a question, why do you not twinkle like other stars do? Do you like to be there in the sky all alone? Do you want to rest,

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

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
