Silence - Poem by jacob mathews

Smiles and laughter long gone
Whispers of sweet nothings lost
Beauty of past fades from memory
Silence, silence is all that remains

My ears don't hear her laughter
Or her sweet soothing words
Once best friends with a secret cove
Now two strangers nothing more

Silence, silence
Drives me crazy, my heart yearns
For the touch that's lost
laboured breath, stinging eyes and
Silence, silence are all that remain

Heavens open and its wonders laid bare
Earth give up its finest wares
People laugh and birds sing
But without her eyes and ears, for me
Silence, silence is all that remains

Topic(s) of this poem: loss, lost love

    An insightful blend of blissful nature of love, and the distressful loneliness occasioned by its exit well articulated and nicely penned in poetic diction with conviction. Love is a spiritual experience and voyage of bliss that affects one profoundly. Thanks for sharing Jacob. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
