Treasure Island

Aurora Wells

(February 7th / Peekskill, NY)

The Dead of Silence

Unsteady quiet, lonely as it sounds,
Avoided like a plague
It’s the dead of silence

One thing said, another’s yell
Fault is really very vague,
In this dead of silence

Watching you walk out
Every time I walk in
I feel this be my own fate
Alone, in the silence

I should have said nothing
My feelings never heard
I chanced it this time and now pay dearly
For my love only leaves me
This dead silence.

    Sentimental but emotionally sound.... hurt can be felt in dead silence, makes one reminisce the monent a love one leaves. Splendid work. another 10. (Report) Reply

    Talk about lonely, this was a poem that took its sweet time getting posted... found this very haunting, and certainly have been there before... know what you're talking about. I try to avoid it like the plague too. Good pacing, brings out the lonely aspect, which you achieved easily... I don't know if that's a compliment though lol
    Great job sis!

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
