Cold Silence (poem)

Updated on March 2, 2014

Cold silence was the answer it would take

When memories of summer made heart ache

And all tomorrow’s hopes began to shake

For from a dream alas I must awake

-

The streams of magic moment flowed so right

Rich realms beyond the sunset were in sight

And all tomorrow’s hope appeared so bright

For all which was danced in our glowing light

-

The splendors of each instance we would take

To stars which held our heavens there in sight

The streets which felt our footsteps all turned bright

And never was existence this awake

-

But darkness fell upon a world so right

Its breathing told how emptiness could ache

The solid love we shared began to shake

And with the slamming door extinguished light

-

Now here I lie to fates not yet awake

Within this pool I feel my body shake

The wounds from knife no longer do they ache

Cold silence was the answer it would take

      hi,

      I admire your poem and i really like the four lines,

      "But darkness fell upon a world so right

      Its breathing told how emptiness could ache

      The solid love we shared began to shake

      And with the slamming door extinguished light"

      Too good...Keep up the work

      Dark and beguiling, Martin.

      Cold silence, impenetrable isolation--the pain is all consuming.

      Great work!

      DJ.
