Silence Isn't Always Golden Poem by Jennifer Birchall

Silence Isn't Always Golden

Rating: 4.8

That hurt, a pain never felt before
I think my heart is broken
Knowing I no longer have your love
The silence spoke like thunder
I knew it would happen so why am I sad
My tears are a waterfall flowing free
I'll wipe them with a heavy hand
Then I'll paint on a smile
