Days of Silence



counting the days…
one, two and so
achingly slow…
three and four
days of silence.

booming silence
as not one word be passed
among us
as if
we were both walking
deceased
numbly moving along
forgetting our natural instinct
to love,
communicate

knowing,
there is an internal battle
festering within us

lost in translation,
between the words we did not say
and the silence that followed

silence
five, six,
now seven days…

i’ll count ‘til infinity
to hear what you have to say.

  4. last night
    inspired by your poem
    I looked into the starry night sky
    I thought ... what if I trust in the silence, and it's full of lights
    and without words I know
    :)
    thanks a lot

  5. I love the last line. There is nothing more damaging than the silent treatment. Within it, the loudest conversations take place in the voices of assumption.

  6. And lost in interpretation!

    Waiting for the moment to pass even as we await another moment to dawn.

    Maybe in silences words are indeed spoken.

  9. The last two lines truly broke my heart. If silence is used as weapon it is so damaging.

    you'll find what I mean shortly...

    But, seriously, folks, as I stand-up
    here on this Great Stage of our lifelong demise
    (only 66ish feet across and 1-outta-1 croaks),
    what's the MOST important objective in your
    finite existence, dear? I certainly know what mine is:

    Hope2God this provides some knowledge
    on your everlasting, spiritual journey;
    I may see you again Upstairs... maybe not...
    depending on how well WE mortals have fulfilled
    our voyage to the Great Beyond by 1) loving God
    and 2) loving our neighbor to the best of our ability.

    Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
    than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
    Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
    You’re creative, yes?
    Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

    Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2 all-go-rhythm?
    An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
    avant-guarde-humility =
    you’re promptly astonished, ain’tcha?
    withe extraordinarily explosion of mellowdramatic maelstrom??
    Ha. Yeah. Us, too, for eternity.
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love –
    jump into faith…
    and you’ll VitSee with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.
