When Silence Is Louder Than the Noise; Thought Provoking Self Realization

Hold Very Still...and listen...

Just Me....
Just Me.... | Source

From Somewhere Within My Head...

...I hear a tender voice say: ...

"Good Evening, Damsel."...

"No more distress." ...

"I am here" ...

"Take my hand" ...

"Here is where I stand."...


A few times in my life there have been moments of absolute clarity.

When for a few brief seconds,

The silence...

It drowns out the noise ...


And I can FEEL...

Rather than think ...

But for some random reason...

I can never make these moments last ...

My Shadow

Me and My Companion
Me and My Companion

I Sit & Hold My Body Very Still....

... And reflect on memories of times when I felt true happiness...

Moments in my past that were filled with wonder...

I cling to these moments as long as my mind will allow...


Although it doesn't take too long before my thoughts get interrupted...

And like Seraphim, they fade away...

Ethereal moments of memories...

That stay deep rooted in my mind...


Forks in My Road...

These moments dissipate...

With the early morning fog...

Although the memories stay dormant...

Until I call for them once again...


I've made my choices as a result of these instances...

I've lived my life for these times ...

They pull me back to the present...

And into the Now...


And I realize that everything is...

Precisely the way it was meant to be.


All That We See Or Seem

This Voice I Hear...

It encourages me to open my heart...

To listen intently..

Beyond life's cluttering sounds ..​.


To seek guidance within myself...

To hear what is meant to be heard...


The message, it​ can be profound...

Though at times like these, it seems...

The silence can be louder than the noises.

They speak volumes ..

And so now...

... once again... I turn the page ...

And venture to the next chapter of my life...

It is being written right before my eyes.....

Because I am the author...


And my heart... swiftly it beats.

In my hands...clutching tightly..

I carefully move forward...


My future is yet to be told...

Like a fortune telling machine in a traveling show...

I drop in the coin slot, my twenty-five cents....

And only then, to me...

It will begin to unfold...


My Friend...My Shadow

Chapter by Chapter....

...My book of life is being written...

The pages...

.......One after another.....

................After another...


The words...

They fill each page...

From margin to margin...

Steadily...Methodically...

With a life force...

All on it's own...


Not unlike a river...

Runs free after a strong and heavy storm....

Chapter after chapter...

It seems to practically write itself...


I listen intently...

Seemingly amused...

Paying special attention to all the little details...

Details that could have easily been missed...

Had it been a story of somebody else's life...


My Own Personal Companion

I Grasp the Realization....

"Why didn't I see You before?"...

"I just don't know!"...

Amused...


My heart skips a beat...

Your heart picks it right up...

A new spring jumps into my step...


An unfamiliar courage...

An epiphany, it dawns on me...

And finally I understand...


I was never really alone...

You have always been with me...

My fear subsides like a faded old memory...

A page written long ago...


With you at my side...

and you've always been at my side...

MY FAITHFUL SHADOW...

    I say out loud what others only think. I take great pleasure in expressing the hard core truth about awkward situations at Misscue.Hubpages.
