I'm troubled by the silence in my ear.....
the tremble in my throat.
The loudness in my ideals.

My throat is thickened with grief 
it sleeps with blindness.
My scraped arm is the mark of sorrow   
riddled by delusion.

This cry, that weakens the knee of the beggar
who scrambles from the wet silence of despair.
I feel trapped by the wolves that bite at the bitten.

Shake my hand,
feel my last pulse.

Weakness seems to be the keeper of my strength.
I look to fight in the hostel of my defeat.
The shock of my descent jostles my approach.
I circle my anger to confuse my bitterness.

Should I curse Tomorrow to forsake Today?
Stillness is everywhere covered with the cloak of my sanity.
Noise from my heart riddles in the darkness.
Why am I troubled by the silence in my ear?
The tremble in my throat

    Sean, from the comments I've read I can tell you that Great poetry cannot be too long hidden from great poets... All is takes to surface and be recognized is that it be posted.... Great work, my friend..... Jake

    Sean, you gave me chills with this beautiful lyrical poem. Going in my faves. I love the sounds of silence. "Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again.... Within the sounds of silence" (Simon and Garfunkel)

    Very well written poem Sean! The power of silence can never be ignored - it is desired and feared in the same measure. I like the image you've brought out when you said 'weakness...keeper of my strength' - it shows the frailty of man. Well done!
