#Silence


Last time we met
I spoke my heart out
I laid my soul bare
My eyes searching
My ears intent to hear
I knew icould swear
I asked for nothing more
Only, faith for faith
Loyalty fof loyalty
And respect for respect
But i could only perceive silence
I thought sound can wound
But silence can be peircing
Silence can be excruciating
Silence can hound
Wounds do heal with time
But the scars remain
The pain is gone
But the numbness still bothers
And the silence still prevails

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
