Silence


Silence
Silence…..force that drives the world;
Silence…..love that goes untold;
Silence…..child left to cry;
Silence…..infant without life;
Silence…..lover left alone;
Silence..…writer without a poem;
Silence…..judge who decides our fate;
Silence…..angel filled with hate;
Silence…..warrior who will not fight;
Silence…..heaven without light;
Silence…..man without a mate;
Silence......withdrawal without debate;
Silence…..mercy buried deep;
Silence......hopeful thoughts we keep;
Silence…...world without a choice;
Silence…...people without voice;
Silence.......reaper, with scythe, black cloak;
Silence.......sleeper, dreamer, hoax;
Silence.......keeper of destiny's fear;
Silence.......music we will never hear;
Silence.......human race abhored;
Silence.......our eternal reward....

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
