silence and symbols


i did not understand symbols
you taught me symbols
you gave me symbols
we spoke in silence
we spoke in symbols
now silence and symbols have lost the way
i have forgotten to understand symbols
' you ' spoke symbolically
till the moment
you broke the ' silence '

    A broken heart seeks symbols from his dear one to find solace that his love is there/has not lost its grace! (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley
