# # # Lament In Silence

Rating: 3.3

I could have moved him

If he could hear how loud

my heart was beating

I could have touched him

But he could not feel much

beyond his pale skin

I could have loved him

But he was blind and could not read

my broken lines

I went through the motions

Drowning in an ocean

A dead sea...

He kept on looking past me

i think sonya, silence to be of two types; first is silent silence and second is disturbed silence....to me, this poem is a beautiful depiction of disturbed silence or i would say, shrieking silence....

A disappointed love affair. Such poems not at all stir me at my age. You may read my 'Yours affectionately' just for a change.

I love this poem Sonya. The words run deep and I felt every line. It is true, sometimes there are some folks that do not connect with us, however much we wish it. His loss, I say. Great poem. HG: -) xx
