Bharati Nayak


I Speak Not - Poem by Bharati Nayak

I speak not
As I feel
Speaking is not essential
Silence speaks for itself
Even eyes speak
Speak thousand words my quivering lips
Unsaid words travel million miles
Sun speaks
Moon speaks
Speaks the thunderstorm
When hearts meet
Mouth says no words
Only the closeness knows
How louder is the heart
When it beats
Beating the loudness of sea-roars.

    'I speak not' The title itself is so unique and interesting.
    Enjoyed the poem because of the simplicity with which it describes simple truths of life.
    My most favourite line is: When it beats
    Beating the loudness of sea-roars.

    A powerful title and write on love that
    holds us spellbound.
    The power and wonders of love have been vividly
    depicted in this very moving piece of art.
    Yes, when hearts meet, it knows no boundaries.
    The loudness of the heart sears through everything,
    defying everything.
    Beautifully crafted and well executed write.10+++

    One of your the best poem on love, this poem speaks for itself. Two loving soul prefer to have silence since words may spoil their charm. Words can be interpreted in several ways but silence is a universal language understood by all. A profound poem, I missed earlier but better late than never.100/10 (Report)Reply
