Treasure Island

Silence


Silence speaks
Silence screams
Silence talks louder then any word
that cuts true the heart like a sword.

Silence speaks
Silence screams
Silence echoes in my ears
to my eyes it brings tears

Silence speaks
Silence screams
Silence drives me around the bend
what's the problem i don't understand

Silence speaks
Silence screams
Silence is a weapon of your choice
To cut trough my heart
Like a sword
with out saying a single ward

    i agree completely. Sometimes silence makes you also hear things that aren't there too. Gives you a lot of time to think. (Report) Reply

    'It is better said and heard in silenec
    Than eloquence'
    as deafs hear better
    and dumbs speak better.

    Hi,
    Yes, I see what you mean. Nice poem. Mine was inspired by someone who maintains that silence is a virture. But I think she misinterpreted the meaning behind it. Silence is something to conveniently hide behind and my thought is that these people miss much by being on the sidelines..beyond reproach. It can also be cruel and cutting as you describe.

    Thanks! (Report) Reply

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
