Dear Stillness, Poem by Argentine Tango

Dear Stillness,

Rating: 5.0

Still, are you here?
Still, it is I.
Still, you have found me.
Shrouded with the weight of your presence,
Shifting through what scars memory has captured,
Shredding through ties that have kept me intact.
Shrapnel splits veins, leaving venom to spread.
Still, you are no comfort,
Still, you hover like a thick mist,
Still, I am deafened by your whispered silence.
Still, I need you to go, but
Still, I want you to stay.

Argentine, I really like this poem! I'm caught in the stillness by reading this. Very powerful. A perfect illustration of the angst of being in that stillness. In stillness things are revealed. Rick Elpers

the more I read this poem the more I adore it! the unique style of this piece gave it structure and control while speaking about a fairly uncontrolled and wild emotion. I like the contrast.
