In Between, Silence

The oath spilled over my lips
If you hurt me, said she 
I will never forgive you!
No, it was not the words
Probably the pose, or the voice
Or was it the silence between?
But there was power, and I swore
A daunting spirit 

In Between, Silence!

Today, I awoke to the mocking bard
I am sorry, said she
Forgive me, forget me
It was the words, no pose, no voice
And the sinful silence aside,
There was power in the words
The daunting spirit.

    What a mystifying, awesome poem here. Silence can be harsh at times ... wrote a couple of poems about the solitude. It can act like a haven or a hell...hahahah it all depends. Have yourself an amazing week. Love the beginning to the end. Very full of sorrow, but yet, as Leo says, emotionally powerful. :DD It's an on-the-edge, yet thrilling read here, thankx for posting.
