Footprints Of My Silence Poem by Romeo Della Valle

Footprints Of My Silence

Rating: 4.9

Simple words revealing a pure love
That slowly is drowning me
In the deep Ocean of my silence
Every time I think of you
While sorrows and sadness
Little by little are killing me...

Last night, while pretending
That I was waiting for you,
I suddenly felt a chill,
That clearly froze my heart and mind
And for a second,
I thought it was you approaching
But it turned out to be
My mind playing tricks on me...
I felt really devastated and empty,
Like a morning without dew
Or a dried rose without scent
Or a candle consumed by time..

Now, alone and terribly sad,
While listening to an old song
That reminds me of the time
When we were happy together
Some time ago...
Vivid memories of my past
Ripping my life apart
Every day that passes by
And I still think of you,
Then like a baby I cry,
Saying goodnight to myself
Hoping that tomorrow
Will be a better day
When I would bury my past
But preserve my Hope and Faith...

This is a very expressive, straightforward, heartfelt, wonderful poem. It really is the authentic outcome of intense feelings and emotions. I also love the imagery, particularly these comparisons: ' Like a morning without dew/ Or a dried rose without scent/ Or a candle consumed by time.' Wishing you much hope and all God's blessings upon you!
