fearing noise

I shall leave words behind in the wind, 
where no sound is embraced, I rescind

speak not for me, my love-
leave me ashore, forsaken
so that delicate wounds can
heal;
your love stopped and so 
did my tender heart,
so please speak not for me

clamor vanished without a 
a single word-
rumpus clatter ceased
and 
I am forever lost inside 
deserted caves without 
echoes

for this is not repose,
but an inarticulate moment
of implied weakness

I tarry alone-
taciturn 
without 
viable 
strength,
fearing 
only 
the 
persistent 
noise 
not 
yet 
heard

"I am forever lost inside deserted caves without echoes" This line blew me away. The entire poem was amazing but that line spoke to me loudly, even in the silence. Best wishes in the contest

aww so glad you liked it and that line, I kept wanting to use echoes somewhere and that's where it landed I guess! :) thank you dear Chris:)-luloo

Interesting work around silence and sound; when love stops so does all meaningful sound. Good luck in the contest Luloo.
