Treasure Island

Erica German

(1992 / clinton twp)

silence


silence is the deepest cut
silence is the thing that makes you nuts
silence is the thing thatll make you cry
silence is the thing that makes the noise die

silence is a world at peace
silence is your outer fliece
silence is the door thats closed
silence is something that God will always know

silence is what lifes about
silence is the thing you do when you pout
im gonna tell you something dear
silence is my biggest fear

    i love this, because you describe silence and then at the end you subtly say that its your biggest fear, allowing insight into your fears. its very powerfully done. (Report) Reply

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
