Silence And Words - Poem by Lulu Belle

When my mouth is closed and my ears are open,
I hear the rustle of trees, and the distant ocean.

When my words fall silent and I simply listen
I hear the thoughts that I keep imprisioned.

When talking in vain will not ease their pain
but taking a moment to pause, will highlight the cause.

When shouting aloud only heightens the row
A silent rebuff is more than enough.

When you need to say sorry but words are unfound,
Show them the look that needs not a sound.

When he is silent and it's deafening to hear,
Know that if spoken, words would confirm your fear.
