Music is the poetry to my heart. The melody and the beat are what resonate within me. When I write my own poetry

I’ve got enough thoughts to fill books, songs, poems about confusion, sadness, rage But if I tried to write them down,
The silent air tonight says more Than anything I've said before. It’s filled with the words I cannot speak. Are you too deaf? Is my voice too weak?
what happens when you have no more words to say?  nothing you can say?  you desperately grapple for something, anything: weather/food/school/life    so much pointless chatter   filling up the empty space 
My own silence most terrifies me While freedom is my savior We must close our eyes Rise above the noise And speak louder than blockades I need my voice to say no I need my voice in highs and lows

She saw Him He saw Her   Both on contacts with the eye   whatever were the distractions to be   it was but a sweet meet   a sweet feast a joyous joy

Up above in the emptiness of space
It forms at every pauseIt lurks around every cornerIt builds with every secondIt waits for the next momentIt is everythingIt is nothingIt will open doorsIt will slam them shut
  The Stage of Silence    
The kids are screaming and playing to the sounds of cars passing by. An airconditioner hums with an impeciple breath and the teachers shout the names of the children.   Again.
I try to scream Nothing Silence I try to speak Yet again nothing Silence I wonder what has happened I am mute to the world Has someone clipped my vocal cords so as to forever silence 
Silence is the enemy, Never too far away. Other fears have begun to flee,  Yet it seems to linger and stay.   Why must quiet fill the room Every time I go to speak?
Fellow white people!
They would turn a whisper into a shout. A phrase streching for miles. I'd tell truth to be revealed Healing would never come... The truth sets only those free who confess. I, of the confession am in bars.
and all the cannibalistic bullets trapped n digging through the fox hole cant stop me from letting my silence speak to you cause when words hit you dont hear a sound.
I feel the sylables Nesting within my breast Effectively avoiding spillage  Emptied from my clenched lips Destroying the illusion  Held of prefection Enclosing the unspoken
Silence is my welcome mat, It meets me at the door, Words don't work here. But I still implore   I hope for answers that never come My heart is wide open So much gore to show
Say the right things And I shall speak Say the wrong things And I shall be silent.
City Lights, Valley low Watching through all the snow From this highway where I stand Twinching fingers, aprehensive hand   City Lights, how you glow Twinkling dots put on a show
I stand alone
What we are
My favorite thing is when I am held close- To your face. When you hold me and keep me close- To you. I am scared of falling. Shattering and breaking because you could not care enough- To catch me.
Speaking three different languages
WHO AM I I am a tree- standing where I am. I am the wind- always there, but never seen. I am an eagle- slowly soaring by. I am looking out for you and I sometimes wonder why.
The vaguely audible drip-drop of tears onto floor The sorrow, miserable countenance she wore The expanding of an internal flame Who is, I wonder, truly to blame?   She slouched, unevenly sitting
Fearless is the absence of the fear Fearing less is a message held dear Bravery or neccessity, the motive unclear Tongueless or eyeless, his silence impure A road less tread, a story unread
But I'm probably just rambling to air at this point.  No matter how prolific,
Silence is deafening when I'm alone The hum of nothingness's tone Not a pin drop nor a mouse's scurry Not a scraching or a tapping to be heard   The sound is frightening, Like a sentence of torture.
Absence of Sound The avoidance to mention a single word
Silence both at peace and war. Wanted and resented, silence consumes the world and all who call it home. For years, all throughout the start of my life, just as most children, I thought silence to be, a stranger of my actions.
Wretched flames amidst sweltering pink ridges
A poem that I featured on my blog:
Judge with thoughts in the dark shadows green Remember in mind what was forseen
  i speak for those who have lost their courage to speak  for those whos words run to the tip of their tounges just to retreat back to the back of the throats back to where they came from 
There’s a moment. That moment. Just one moment that happens so rarely That when it comes people think it’s nothing It’s just something that happens Occasionally. But it’s more than something.
I'm running Trying to catch up Trying to get a hold But you slip right through
I was so naive So blind When it came to you I was a complete fool  
When you see me, Am I invisible?What am I? You conversate to me like you know me.But do you know?
Silence is golden. But talk is cheap. Does that mean the quiet are rich? And the social ones weak? Then why is it that society Places the price on the head Of the one with a smile And an empty head?
You preach your theories, teach your lies.
Do you hear that? Me either. 
"Speak!" you scream at me as your words wrap around my throat,
The uneasy feeling
Loneliness is illness A silent danger   If left untreated, May prove to be fatal   Symptoms include Wishful thinking, an ache   Somewhere in the thoracic cavity
Quiet is the observer Motionless in kaleidoscopic torment. I thought until thought was meaningless. “Grab the pen! Grab it, you coward!” A ceaseless voice streams Through an intravenous drip.
The shadow s
Happy eyes, Hidden tears. Smiling laughter, Suppressed fears. Innocent words, Knowing mind. Light chords, but deep behind. Just a joke to me there's meaning.
The quiet silenceAs my soul remembers meAll that I became
    To Those Who Cannot Speak –   Let it be known that I hear your voice, Through the wrinkles in your skin and the quick motions of your hands, Sound is not the only choice.  
My mouth goes dry and my throat closes up People wonder if I am mute But the truth is I have nothing to say
I know well enough That I am not alone But nevertheless my resolve is to never give up my secret For if ever I did I would certainly be stoned Or forced to pack up and leave their home To show my own soul
Let me paint a picture,
I think about suicide all the time, Even when I don’t, it’s still at the back of my mind, I try to remember all the time I tried to leave, I’m aching for this pain to recede, I’m so tired of feeling worthless,
We are nothing more than people. We are masses with voices. Some cry silently and shed not a single tear; Some are bleeding from their throats, but all are desperately wishing. We all desperately need.
The crack of a cackling bullet Shattered the life and the sanctum of thought Which held me up, assisted and created me But left me when I needed it the most   The scream of a dying soul
Sorrow written with the tears tracing your skin, Desperately shedding the agony left unspoken. Sorrow that slowly consumes you from within, Greedily slicing apart the heart that once dreamt.   
Silent tears concealed by a pathetic façade. Soundless suffering, weeping. A voiceless shrill cloaked by false smiles. Muted agony, raw and searing. A torturous solitude
She's stuck in this circle t
Everything I say is wrong So i've been staying quiet Not speaking for so long
my head still comprehends sometimes the broad strokes so few paint with anymore
Silence Oh Silence, My hushed homeland hide-out a gem  rarely unearthed main supporter when all is wrong When all words fail Silence  
Fear that runs so deep your soul cries from the pain
Silence. It can be a warm embrace after a world of chaos and pain. The sudden realization of it all though, of the sheer sound of nothing, now that's different. When you realize what silence brings.
They both sit in the dark room bathing in silence as the tension starts to build.
Being heard is a lie. Children get scoulded for asking "why?" In this nation we are silenced  By the people who are supposed to be our guidence. We are herded like sheep,
When the world is so loud and chaotic as it seems,
Silence You wanna be heard? Don't make a sound. It's profound.
One of the most unknown things to man is silence.
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
No one truly asks,
They ask me why I write the words that I do,  What are my intentions? To be heard In the seemingly inescapable noise of societies chaos and noise pollution,
Stand Up Wake up with that dreadul feeling.
A weed in a lawn full of grass. A disturbance an annoyance Ugly and fowl.
In my hands I hold    a photograph of you   and him standing    at the altar and I wonder   what    
They only fester in the silence. Time is ticking. We should stop being quiet Because all they can do is fester in the silence.   The longer they fester, the worse the pain. Time is ticking.
I don't like it. Not at all, I don't appreciate this. This immense hatred, and dislike. That is all towards me. Why? I must ask why... Why am I the target, of all, Your hatred?
You never hit Wetness like stripes fall Drip into regret   You never yelled at me, Gasping air, the thud of the wall. Memories are set.   You never lied to me
You hold me close and say, "Don't fret.""It's okay, I will soon forget".I know the words are only in my mind,But somehow this connection we have; it speaks to me.
"You don't know what I say in my mind Close to my heart"--"get your face out of their behind!" "You think you're so this and so that all that pride and ego talking, take a seat" she sat
It’s quiet Dead silence It’s never this quiet in my house   I don’t like silence It’s deafening It makes you sit there on the couch With the TV turned off
Poetry The tall, dark and handsome man I long for His broad shoulders are the frames to the most beautiful painting His eyes illuminate in the sky like the stars Almost as if you could touch him,
    He moved, slowly, into the silence   And I haven’t seen him since.   Do I stay or do I part?   The decision will come from my heart.  
I’m a whirlpool, No, A thunderstorm, No, A category 5 hurricane, Of thoughts, and hopes, Of memories, and dreams, Of puzzle pieces and star dust.   But everything stays silent.
 I see you. You see me. Our eyes meet, But out mouths don't speak.  
Out the window, carried on clouds On a day so listless I can't hear a sound Silence so loud no thoughts are clear
Don't move,
Wake up, Dress,  School, Wither, Dinner, Sleep,  Repeat.
Silence screams clearly About the hurt inside all Speak up. Reach out. Heal. 
Love is not saying three words for reassurance nor is it insecurity.
There is something stirring  It threatens fear It threatens death My only escape is to drown Drown it out Push it down Do not breath Do not think Do not cry
  Silence.   I’m choosing not to speak. Everything I say, I say it on repeat. My answer- I don’t know.         Silence.    Yes. I really do.
Silence   This isn’t how we should be. But we’ve decided that's how it will be.
I rearrange my personality and fix my face, Tuck my curse words and laid back cool college kid demeanor
The silence is burning straight through my brittle bones The silence is scary because it leaves a presence for daunt thoughts The first thing that races through my head is the need to die
Steady beeping. White walls. Disinfectant. Beeping. Two people. One in a chair. One in a bed. Beeping. Tears. Wires. Machines.
From my first faltering breath, whisperedPronounced words bound in abandonSpace in deafening silenceScreams muffled in mourningBulging eyes proclaimClarity, reinedUnrestraintSeekingAir.
I’m not bullied,not me.I never have been,and I probably won’t be.But I’m sickand I’m tiredof watching these people laugh at other people.
they found he razor in the shower today because i forgot to take it out. thye looked at me with dissipointed eyes today but ppretentded they knew nothing about.   they heard me gagging in the bathroom today
Silence ringing in my ear, Buzzing like some sort of infernal pest, If it goes on for one more second I won’t be able to bear, The thought of you laying our conversation to rest.
Warning: some explicit language  
It's hard to explain feelings To someone who hasnt experienced them. It's hard to explain what silence sounds like Without having first heard a sound. All of these feelings we try to disguise,
Silence is so loud, A roaring lion coud not compare. It burns through your mind and demands you to hear.
Don’t mind me. I’m just passing through. I’m neither here nor there And I won’t be stopping. Don’t mind me. Excuse me, pardon me I’m only passing through. I gave up long, long ago
My silence speaks volumes Telling all what I say without words But only those who truly have listened Are the ones who know what needs to be heard
Silence. It surrounded me like a thick blanket, a false illusion of security as I walked across Fulton and through the market. My flats tapped the ground, giving off no sound,
My teacher once told me The snow absorbs sound And that is why in winter When the air is cold And comes out in puffs The world is silent And any sound is muffled By a heavy crystal blanket
You’re put into groups of those who are supposed To shut up and keep their heads down. You’re asked to “speak up” when spoken to And when you do without asking They tell you to “quiet down”
I speak in tones of silence. Every detail of me grows in volumes of silence.  
I walked through the valley of the shadow of death And witnessed the face of the many Who suffered greatly without remorse I gazed upon the anguish and Fear within their eyes  
The ship is sinking. There is a hole in the bottom of the stern. The women scream and clutch their children with fright While the men run around, struggling to maintain control.
Talking is easy but I don’t speak Some of the most wonderful things grow from silence and solitude Loneliness is painful but I don’t weep
Before, when I entered a quiet room, there would be nothing for me to hear.   When I would reach the end
As I lay here only thinking of you, I wonder
Since birth, we are surrounded by the music of our lives. In our first years, the sounds are new and wonderful.
I look at the towering shelves that enchant  me with their dust, And their books sitting there like a superlative throne. I find the quiet a blessing, Because I know they won't forever be silent.  
And I lay my head on my soft pillow. Silence.Inhale, exhale. I focus on my breath.When my thoughts run off to a distant memory
You know that thing that happens Between a professor posing a question and that First student raising a reluctant hand To answer it    That awkward pause.  That silence.
The sound shut out from a crowded room Hearing one note after another, clear and smooth Calm, Serene Only when that noise enters From the crowds of people Laughter, Chatter Do I feel completely alone
night is when all of my monsters emerge.
You say you're in a funhouse,
"What if we didn't go to war?" I accidently ask in my Junior econ. class I feel my classmates eyes on my back, I sit in the front for a reason. "Hippie! Go to california you Democrat" I hear a student say to me.
A rose placed upon shattered  glass. Her cries are heard from afar,  But no one listens.
Silence. It crashes upon the shores of noise with the sound of television static. Then it stops. There is nothing but darkness in my ears and stars exploding in my brain.
I like being alone, to myself. It gives me time to think, listen, and observe. No crowdsof people complaining about their life. Just.... stillness and calm. Time stops when I'm alone, to myself.
I have never realizedHow alone I've felt until this very moment...It hit me like I had just ran into a brick wallI hate how horrible I feelHow depressing this emotion isAnd to think that my biggest fear was to be aloneWhen I've felt alone for 4 yr
There are so many things I want to tell you I was the quiet one in class who did all of his work But you still gave me the bad grades because I did not talk throughout your class
Alone. 5 words. 2 syllables. A major problem within itself. Not only are we the cause but we are the reason. Yet as time passes something begins to happen.
Silence is the killer, the murderer most formidable, abducting peace from Solution’s stronghold- mellowing a path toward never-ending Havoc, who takes rightful partnership alongside his accomplice.
The sound of silence,  One I know too well, The quiet is so haunting,  And I wish my fear would dispel, The silence is omipresent That I know for sure, Its every place I am,
I feel like I messed up like I misrepresented myself to the point where you don't know who I am. Like I'm singing a song on your off beats with a syncopated rhythym you
I have recognized that everyone is on their own At the end of the day we have all sung the same song Our emotions are imperceptible, we can barely express them We can easily fool each other with our thoughts and truths
  Silence   My mother always asks me, Why I can never seem to sit still. My muscles tighten and an excuse is quickly constructed,
You say, “Tell me you remember.”       But that would be a most grievous lie.             So I say nothing. You say, “I don’t understand!”       But you could never be remembered.
I don't want the silence But it comes crawling in Into my ears, and I can't help but reflect upon Myself I try to stop it But I can't help think How ugly I am They say I'm beautiful
With each waking breathe, my soul quivers for fear. I cant stop these feelings inside me.   He tells me to breathe only breathe, its all we ever have left but why? 
Feather Light Flakes Feather light flakes drift down from the sky, Dusting the flowers that only just died, Soaking through leaves that only just dried.   You wake up to silence
766509, please raise your hand. To the school I was but a number, feeding money into the stands. What I say I mean quiet literally because money is all that mattered. The students saftey, or ablity to learn
They think it's easy Easy to think so much Information consumes one Like bees on honeycomb   Where do all these thoughts Originate Pulled from thin air Circulating from mind to mind
The fact that I hold the door open for girls does NOT make me a lesbian.
Of days when I have forced my will To school, and kept myself so still, And haven't uttered cries of grief, Of your incompetent relief - Deriving from your lack of skill, In the ability to feel
I’d say it in person, but I fear rejection Because when a student speaks out there’s surely ejection You ask who I am, just look at my friends I stay true to my values while others change like trends
i am scared i am here on the outside i show no fear this is new i am here within time there will be no fear
i am scared i am here on the outside i show no fear this is new i am here within time there will be no fear
Careful, now, I daydream softly, As the clock strikes one by one, Only a lifetime 'til that saintly bell tolls, but until then, the prisoners must suffer. I hear the voice that makes my starry mind pucker,
Miles to, hundreds from Where my hearts pulled Where the sun drowns Where the wind doesn't blow, We sit in silent war.   The cry's cold cut on the brink of hysteria
When you see this soft-spoken, shy girl sitting at her desk, You see someone weak As I quietly doodle away on my note-pad, You see someone distracted When every other girl giggles and laughs with her friends,
Scared? Frightened? I used to be all those things until, I met silence. It welcomed me with a cold hug. I hated it. No, I wasn't mute, and never will be, sadly. But sometimes  I wished I could be mute.
Sad to say To my dismay I waste away my day Trying to find the words to say To make you stay But my silence just pushes you away.   So here I am instead Laying here in bed
Nothing seems to work Nothing could ever be said I am never heard   Nobody can hear Nobody will listen now I am never heard   Silence is comfort Silence is my company
Your love is true, but this "us" does neither you nor I any good. 'Cause,   In the end, this big house is still empty  and I remain alone, in the silence,
Hear the laughter and not the end Past mistakes in my head Break the tip of my pencil lead The end of the end is only the beginning  When I listen to those words I only hope that you're kidding
The triumph of the meek will beLoud. Crowds of complex hearts pulledOut of dying chests, vests of steel thrown off, meltedDown and welded into cymbals and trombones.The groans and creaks of grief will cease;
Want it gone Away forever But I know That it’ll never. Focus on one Impossible. Focus on many Probable.
I am young but old I wonder what it feels like to fly I hear the whisper of a butterfly's wing I see the colors of the wind I want to go to heaven one day and see my grandma I am young but old  
Can't breathe, need air,Hands shaking, almost there.Rushing, pulling, running,The taste, simply stunning.
There is a place I go  When I'm alone A quiet space Away from all the chaos Of the world that we've misnamed home When there is time to spare It is there That I will wander
He steps off the plane, He's finally home. All is quiet, No blaring guns and, Exploding bombs. The silence is unnerving.   Eighteen months away, For the first time,
"Don't die!" she gasps. "Don't leave me!" she pleads as tears stream down her face. He knows his fate. She denies it. His heart slows. His grip on her hand weakens as she grasps his tighter.
I hate those eyes, That filled the empty void, I hate their soft glow, that promised me everything. I hate those eyes, that let me into your heart, and welcomed me so warmly, told me I am home.
You must think I'm so boring; sitting here not saying a word. Excuse me if you're snoring.   The way you're ignoring me, I feel like roaring. This is absurd. You must think I'm so boring.  
Kids cryin’ and dyin’ Whites and colors never getting along How did everything go wrong? Have you ever seen a troubled Mexican girl walking alone? Or a little boy behind a glass on the phone? You see, I have
I have trouble speaking aloud; it could because of the bullies. Words are easier to write, I don't have to worry. My voice will not shake; my hand is firm, as my pen creates a world out of my own words.
On the lofty, grassy hill I stand Facing toward the eastern dawning light Slowly rising, lighting the damp land Silence broken by the fowl of no flight
  On the lofty, grassy hill I stand Facing toward the eastern dawning light Slowly rising, lighting the damp land Silence broken by the fowl of no flight
The ripples of pain we feel When we hear nothing at all. Why is it said that silence is golden? Silence is iron when it rusts And it takes form as a dagger That impales you,
I write because i can't express the way things make me depressed. Not aloud atleast, so on pages i unleash a beast. Everyone is under the impression that i don't feel, that alone makes me reel.
Silence Silence is golden No, there lies truths unfolded Gold is the truth and silence is the corrosion Failure to speak of such things Leads to conversations about other things
  There's the waveand the crashThere's the runand the screamOh WhyGod Why? Silence Hold it inLet it outHold on tightLet it go It's hereIt's done Silence Looking backwish and reamLooking aheaddream and wish Forgetremember Silence
The odd thing about silence, is that; once it is spoken,  it                                disappears.   Silence is imaginary, It is unreal, It is—
Today there is a deafening roar surrounding me Its scattered chaotic quality makes me feel unease Most days this noise is my soundtrack and silence is too much Today I fear its suffocating
I’m a shadow.. a background image.. No one can see… The chaos that resides within me. The silent tears that no one hears. My body scarred and wounded. My heart jagged, so badly broken.
In silence, You must be beautiful. My listener, My understanding truth. Every word Uncovered through the pages. Giving me nor acceptance nor regret.   Pouring out my Wounds.
We all know that feeling That feeling we use for excitement and adventure That feeling we have when we take first steps That feeling we have when looking into the future It's a scared four letter word
I'm not mute Though my lips are silent. Not cruel Though my thoughts turn violent. I don't agree When I have nothing to say. My mind rebels When my feet obey. You ask for my thoughts
As I wait there watching him slowly but surely slip from my fingertips, i think to myself.  Why should I wait to be noticed? Why should I stand on the sidelines waiting for a chance to conncet with what people a relationsip? ...
We are but black and white The letters that we write. The colors leeching from our pens destroy worlds and breathe sins.
Can I just plug my ears,And shield the noise?I don't have many fears,I'm just freaking annoyed,Mood always switching gears,The lever's almost destroyed,Transparent thoughts remain clear,
We want to change the world.  We sang it together in crowded basements.  Declared it so loudly that the world may be forced to hear us.  But they didn't. 
Music Clashing sounds Rhythmic beats All ensuing me Revolving around my aurora Till it finally enters my body, euphoria Causing my internal energies to move, enigma;
Constant noise ringing insesantly in my ears day and night without rest.   No silence No calming sounds Just irritating distractions. These are the voices of the ignorant  
Please leave me alone.The voices in my head wont be silentCan't think, can't breath.Wanting to escape this terror.No where to paint for my arms are full of the scars as well as my legs.
I woke up that day I saw something new It was that perfect yawn From a great sleep I never thought to have I was inducted It was exclusive I had something special That  made me special
BleaknessThe clouds bleed tearsTo fallAs lead blendsSorrow intoTurmoilPainPeace’s only anecdoteThe smoke blowsInto heartsSearching for hope in the haze
Why do I write?Is it because the wordsstop at the tip of my tongue?Is it because when I try to speak,nothing but a croak emerges?
  8pm and orange setting suns. the soft spring nights resemble what is to come. The track smells of melted plastic with lines of deep blue, the midwest sun glaring, relentless and with no hue.
A cold autumn’s day No time to play A cold autumn’s night No time to fight   There she stands Alone With only the sounds of the forest Her companions She steps on the earth
Empty hearts in a snowless blizzard taking on the heat of day lost to the world so ever loved lost in a world once meant for play  
Knees are buckled tied, looking face down Creaks and crackles pray you're still lingering around Officer says "let's go for a ride"... Let's go for a ride in the black and blue tide
GIVE ME A BREAK! I’m kinda new to this, But I see how great your love truly is. I also see a crazy mess, And it’s bringing me distress. Kindness obsolete; And sometimes kept descrete,
Silence Yes that's me But silent isn't what I want to be It's much too empty and way too still But make of it what you will Silence isn't always bad But not much silence have I ever had
These things you tell yourself at midnight When you're alone and those thoughts in your head just won't shut up. And all you want is some Goddamn silence
Enigmas pulsing through my mind, Wordless and trapped. Emotions flicker through my psyche, Unremitting and unforgiving. How can I release all I'm feeling In a deluge that refuses To be formed with words?
alive in the deadly silence the Noise just sits there and rumbles, to itself cause no one cares to hear friends. comfortable behind mask of blindness
Hungry for help, Yet mute in fear of misjudgment, I store my confessions in vaults. Gated and guarded, My secrets are sheltered in silence; A lone and cumbersome collection.
As the snow falls I feel the memories fade We're given a slate of time that can't be erased We're lulled- Into the cadence of life and the thought of love Herself. As the ice forms on the window pane
Silence in the open air Overwhelmed with nothingness but it's always everything Too jumbled to organize Too messed up to put in complete sentences Am I just dysfunctional? Empowered by self infliction
Spinning Spinning Spinning Each memory, each moment, each thought is connected by a strand of consciousness The image blurs together as time stands still. Sounds become mute and feelings become numb.
My world was turning crashing. I try to stand one hand against the wall. Efforts with no reward left in vain. Aching painfully tears of frustration running down my face. Everything is turning.
Static silence converges on my ears Stealing my sanctuary Refusing to let me rest in nothingness Why must there always be something, not nothing?
The silence is screaming. It’s an invisible fog clouding my judgment and burning my eyes with its icy touch. It’s so dense that I can’t breath without it expanding in my throat; a fog so solid that it chokes my airway with its endless emptiness.
Embrace the silence, For it is wise. Let it visit, before it dies. It is a teacher, and bearer of wealth, It can help a soul to find itself.
I'm alone no one to comfort me nor to help me But forsake me like it's their god given right
This loneliness is dementing me. I speak not of the demons veiled behind every corner. They wait until it's dark Until I have thought myself into a mad frenzy Then they show me the past. What I did
I'm no longer a kid. I've matured mom, yes I did. You keep me locked up, And I'm getting really fed up. It's nine o'clock and you're telling me togoto sleep.
My dearest Silence. How are you these days? I, myself, have been better. You may be wondering, Silence, why I’ve written this. I do not know for sure, but I’ve been told it might help
Every morning Dad comes home Exhausted and shattered by his work The money wouldn’t be asked more. Fumblingly his hands in the kitchen Quick cooking for breakfast as dinner, Quick eating but no one asking for.
Silence so loud. Silence so cold. I've never felt so alone. You can't see it you can't hear it But its the thing we all fear. Hope is lost. Never found. for now.
It's the harsh sound that rings in your ears, the noise equivalent to a bee sting. The white noise in your head vibrates, all you want it to do is cease it's unearthly pitch.
The sun rolled round the silent earth- If every one speaks who is to be heard? The great white doors they tower and toll, But they are a sanctuary; The comfort of home. Behind the brass knob screwed on so tight
Unbroken silence Quiet is all around me My eyes search for sound Seeing is hearing Even what is not spoken Eyes hear everything Life with no hearing Silence is normal for me My life is not loud
So loud in my head Stop to breathe Look up And Silence fills my ears
Silent days Filled with clattering Thoughts Lonely desires Passions stretched over my eyelids like Spandex pants one size too small
It hurts, every whisper Each wayward glance, so close Every moment heard and felt Twisting the shard with each tremor, vibration Icy crystalline glass wedged to deep to pull Oh beating drum in my body and ears
When you find yourself sitting in the sun, a light, unbothering wind upon your thoughts, escaping into the air through your contended expression,
lots of things can end in silence a fight is fought with words like knives cutting the one you love and there are too many i'm sorries to be had so it ends in silence
(poems go here) This World... This place is so cold and hard It feels like there are boulders on my chest They crush my body
The strength of the mind, So quiet, though so kind. Can the flower taste sugar, As the bee take away? It may seem that a way, but we just may not know it. So quiet, though so kind
it hurts to shatter silence, after keeping everything inside for so long to part my pursed lips glued together by the time passed since they last cleaved it’s unnatural and foreign
Silence tourture, obscure masking, censoring, confining An ambiguous strength withheld unpronounced
While the small town sleeps And the moon keeps watch With the stars like guards Drinking spots of scotch While the children dream And the mothers rest With their babies safe Upon their breast
I took a vow of silence, I've decided not to speak. I've created a philosophy, speaking makes one weak.
Silence is a rare currency The value's going up With distractions invading our lives Loudness is worshipped Silence is lambasted And the quiet ones are persecuted And the happily lonely are further shunned
If you could walk a mile in their shoes would you want to Take one step then take a few Look at the people who surround you Would you even understand you Are there things you'd like to undo
The imagery echoes in brain, Never stopping and no gain. Same thing over and over, But no matter what there is no closure.
Father may I, may I tell you that I'm grateful? Father may I, may I tell you that I'm thankful? And not for all the right reasons because you've wronged me, words like jagged talons from your lips remind me,
I woke up last night to a beautiful sound- A sound I hadn’t heard since I was back in California resting in the cusp of my hammock with a pinch of peace between my fingers. I remember it pierced a perfect puncture
My name is subject to change; I stray among the others, freezing in their shadows. This beating; the beating of my heart. Pulsating with courage. These trembling hands, they'll be the hands of a hero.
Shattered. Shattered like the chandelier Now crumbled on our floor. What once lit our worlds Now disintegrates into the dust of time.
Silence My opinions are not the norm. Silence A break before the storm Silence A deep and navy blue Silence That question you ask, with who Silence I’m not going to cry Silence
On the dark cliffs full of shadows The river is rushing, the water crashing Headed towards the inevitable fall
