Burning Silence - Poem by Bradley Dean

I cry for your stupidity
Weep with innocent eyes
Drowned in Life's tempest
Miles Underground

Hours become Days
Days become years
All hope succumbed
to childish fear

Gazing longingly
I see the Prize
Nought between us
But silence enjoys

Tormented by fright
you run from the light
Still in my sight
An ugly fight

Set free your soul
Take the chance
run for your life
Outwit the beast

Lonely and weak
Seeking Shelter
Under our wing
Stay and give in

The event dawns
relying on brothers
lost and now found
Burning anticipations

Ying and Yang
Forgive or Forget
Frozen in joy
Justice Rejoice

    silence contributes to a lot of concentration, the opportunity to be thinkful, the chance to weigh which have you done better or worst, the time to meditate, console yourself, mesmerize and reminisce the past...and oh! its deafening too. This poem was a mixture of all of the above, wonderfully versed, good rhymes. Your poems are short and slim but they meant a handful more than their actual sizes. Keep writing for more. You expressed your views that way, creative in your own style. (Report) Reply
