Silence

Sweet is the harmony of silence 
It crawls slowly in the hand of time
But not in the tomb of grievance 
Where you are your own enemy
It crawls slowly in the hand of time
Watching the towers of your cell
Where you are your own enemy
Shadowed memories are pressed on play
Watching the towers of your cell
But not in the tomb grievance
Shadowed memories are pressed on play
Sweet is the harmony of silence...

    Ps. Smile, and no, I hadn't read closely yet Your splendid poe before making my first com amid Your boxes -- that's why I sounded a bit pleasantly surprised when after reading it closer it seemed a tad near my own perspectives and such; well, less the tear drop hearts moments, that sometimes we know ~ Smile, now on we go....

    ~ "Sweet is the harmony of silence; It crawls slowly in the hand of time; But not in the tomb of grievance." ~ Smile, that's almost exactly what I just said; but even better! I love that perspective dear for, its reveals such a strong character; which one must have sometimes to make it through this life ~ "You Are Awesome; Just Like This Poem" ~ Again, "My Love & Warmth to You Always," John!:) ~ One more....

    Smile ~ "Thank You" for Your kind com; it was for someone very deep within my heart ~ Smile, sometimes silence is a very beautiful moment amid reflections and, upon the other hand it can be, not so pleasant if sorrow is that moment which spend, in soliloquy with a tear drop heart ~ I love the depth of Your Soul Dear for, it is the most beautiful image, that one can ever hold ~ ....Cont:)

    This is very great, Jessica. You are your own enemy, yes indeed! I do not know what a Pantoum even is haha! But I really enjoy the premise of this poem. P.S- I saw your comment on my 'Thor' poem. Yes, the sexism and racism of those times woukdn't have worked out well....even for me lol. I was only role-playing with some satire, and I am bored of the other classic gods on the contest list. That is why I was glad to see Thor on the list, because at least he was enough of a renegade :D~Chris
