Bitter Silence (poem)

Updated on June 15, 2015

There in the bitter silence came a fog

Foreboding dreams left drifting in the air

You feel its breath come seething from the bog

It’s waiting there to catch you unaware


You feel your heart is now betraying you

Beside the fear that awful pounding sound

Will you see morning when this night is through

And with each beat will you still be around


You long to scream but something bids you stay

As something warm now breaths upon your neck

It’s too late now you cannot run away

It’s too late now your life’s become a speck


There in the bitter silence angels fall

You hope you left some clue to help explain

And try to find an ending to it all

Till then inside this fog you too remain

Music only

      All that I can say is it was interesting. I listened to the music for about 1-2 min. and off it went. We have T-and lightening storms tonight. The poem was like a real one since they were right outside of my window. I voted it up,

      and pinned it.

      Fog can do things like that to a person, it can be so disorienting. I remember driving in a pea-souper with an uncle and the going was suddenly bumpy - we had turned and were going along the train line! We got off that in a hurry!

      Interesting poem, Martin. I read it twice. I'm not sure what you intended, but I see a madman caught in the fog of his mind.
