Poems about silence

Silence of Song part 120

Andulan felt her anemia returning,
As huge serpents, thick as men's arms,
Slithered around her body as she knelt down low,
Holding her head to bring an end to the conscious nightmare,
Cringing through the agony building inside, becoming harder to manage,
That old temptation returned once more, action could express that which silence,
Held captive.
Rick tried to free her from monsterousness, guiding shafts towards her core melody,
But vines of metallic integrity deflected good intentions, breaking them upon ground.
Constriction tightened around her heart,
Until she couldn't breathe, didn't feel it anymore,
Held aloft by a direction she didn't want to take,
Andulan was returned to this world an emerald princess.

silence,  song.

They ask me where I've gone
And ask me who I've been
But I can never tell them
Because you never told me

The silence
Flowing within me
Is the noisiest

Pain Swings In Silence [Senryu]

Hanging moments swing
Symbolic silence

Departed eyes gaze

pain,  senryu,  silence,  swings.

Theres nothing I enjoy the most than silence.
Still sweet silence.
When I can hear my thoughts and my heartbeat.

The cold weather and the warm silence
Make me appreciate the beauty of this world.
I see no violence, no tears, no death.
Only a happy silence.

The tranquility
The joy
The peace
That silence brings.

It makes me feel free.

It doesn't need to make a sound
It's everything and nothing
The groupies might still hang around
If it affords you something

In everything it sees no end
It smothers like a virus
It makes it easy to pretend
That no-one's going to find us

In nothing it's a sea of space
It's never been before
It makes no effort to replace
The pain that you once saw

And inbetween
The clouds beneath
It takes it's charge
And grits it's teeth
It knows no time
It lies awake
And stares

It doesn't want to hang around
It's more than you'd imagine
It doesn't want to make a sound
Just gives things room to happen

If nothing else it's like a sail
That moves against the water
It doesn't have the means to fail
But cowers in the corner

Yet everything's a state of mind
It could change like the weather
It never meant to be unkind
It never will forget her

And in amongst
The stars above
It holds it's light
Like lawyers might
And makes it's mark
Because in the dark
There's silence

J, your silence burns.

The world falls quiet,
And so do you.

My ears are ringing
Heart swelling
Mi Amor,

The silence burns.

I submerge my mind in liquid courage
And slur my silly confessions,
Puking emotions all over your unread text messages.

Ruby shame becomes me
Whispering evil things to me
Convincing me that I am a burden.

That I am the one that's crazy here.
Crazy in love.
Crazy to admit it.
I am the one that's crazy here.

You were the one that begged for me to love you.
So why do I have to ask for you to tell me that you love me?
How am I supposed to believe your I love you's?
Am I so insecure, paranoid?

Is it just me?
Am I crazy?

Crimson waves fuel my heart that whisper Jehime in the silent crackle of the fire that blazes through the night in between my rib cage.

Can you feel that,
Corazon? Do you hear that Mi Amor?
Or am I crazy?

My ears are ringing
My doubts are shouting
As it sears it's emptiness into my soul,

The silence burns.

Pero mi Amor Porque?
Quando yo te di todo mi corazon, porque me haces esto?
God, why don't you love me?

It is your silence when I ask you these questions,
Your silence when I bleed Te Amo,
That burns, burns, burns.

burns,  silence.
