Is Silence So Golden? - Poem by Cabaline xxx

She smiles warmly as she enters,
and tries to greet everyone,
with a cheery 'Hello! '
But when she opens her mouth,
no sound is heard at all.
The smile vanishes. She tries again,
but to no avail.
She has no voice.
Her hands grasp her own throat,
in a wild disbelief.
She wants to, tries to, shout,
but less than a whisper is heard.
The phone rings- she doesn't flinch,
she cannot answer the call.
Isolated she sits, no conversation
in which she can take part.
Unable to express joy with words,
or with laughter,
the day miserably drags itself by,
silently- at least for her.
