Silence


Silence can be deafening 
or scream so loud it hurts your ears.
Silence can bring peace and quiet
a space in time to slow down
and change gears. 
Silence can be torture 
filling one with fear. 
Silence can be loves waiting game
causing pain and tears.
Silence can say so many things 
it can even confirm your worst fears.
Silence can do many things,
except it can't see the tears it can't hear.


Kash was my muse for this poem with his Haiku My Voice.

    I'm so glad that you enjoyed this poem as it is one of my favorites. There are a few poems in this body of work that are not the greatest but I maintain them as a lessons to myself of what not to do. Hope you find others you enjoy. Huggs TLee

    I don't know Kash you must just say things in just the right way or something as you have been a muse for me 2 or 3 times. Thanks for being you. Huggs TLee

    I don't think that silence is a very nice way to do things and should only be used as a last resort. Thanks John for dropping by to review. Huggs TLee

    We used to have a saying up north in the upper US at sad times that went like this. The silence is so loud in here that I can hear myself think. Thanks for your loyal review and always kind words. Huggs TLee
