Silence In The Night (poem)

Updated on July 10, 2013





Silence in the night

Whose bitterness

Encompasses the glory of the stars


What do you search for

What do you yearn for

What need will feed your appetite


Surely not here

With a soul and his memories

Waiting to join them again


Surely not here

In the hallways of happiness

Ever so vast


Surely not here

On the golden sunset

Of dreams yet to be


Sitting there lonely

In now empty room

All that remains


There is no reason to smile

There is no hope for laughter

And yet he does


Maybe that is what you’re after

Maybe this is what you seek

Maybe never had to happen


Emptiness forgotten

Silence now is your form

The answer to life without cause


Emptiness forgotten

Can’t you leave this one alone

Whose life you never knew


Emptiness forgotten

Seeks too late a heart

As the light goes out





Music only

      Beautifully written, beautifully painful. Read this 4 years ago & enjoyed reading it again.

      Quite a feeling of loneliness this seems to portray to me. I need to read more of your poems. Been too long since I have!

      Nice! It makes me remember "Sound of Silence" which I consider to be my song of solitude and isolation.

      Cold reality is sometimes truer than a world of rosy dreams. Your different styles are all so believable and easy to imagine.

      I do love the new style here for this truly sad poem, as there are so many who put on those smiles when they have lost all hope and their dreams are dashed. Be maybe they put on the smiles, as truly way deep down, they have not lost all hope!

      Very dramatic and beautiful music here, which is perfect with your expressive words here.

      Sorry, I am so late in commenting, I missed last night and now catching up to read.

      Voted up +++ and sharing

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
