Words In Silence

Updated on August 17, 2010

Words Screamed In Silence

Does anyone know

The blows you feel as cavalier words are shot off without a thought

As thoes you just wish would be proud of you tear you down as you stand with spirit in utter submission

The bright eyes in which you seek comfort strain to ravage the gentle smile upon your split lips

Why dont you cry out

Do you nolonger have hope

Or have ebony and ivory commited themselves to waging war within your soul

Are your eyes still windows or have they become oil marked screens of the past

The scars on your fingers bold reminders of how your pride was vanquished

Does your hair hold times color or have voices colored it with oppression

Is your breath clear or has it become an apprentice of smog

Be your heart real or has it taken on the dementions of parchment

The temperature of your body seems to defy the elements yet your movements give in to the rhythm of persecution

Does anything guide you

Compel you

Motivate you

Anger you

Tourture you

Have you done anything

I speak not of human levels but of thoes beyond that lay within thoes dreams that brought you wonder and joy in a time silenced

Do you live or are you living

Does time compel you or comand you

Is love a feeling or a state of being

What is truths state

Do you run from chaos or have you welcomed it as a cloak about your shoulders

Do colors catch you

Do scents seduce you

Does touch take you over

Are you the master of yourself or have you signed that ownership over to thoes who delight in displaying you helplessly on lifes theatre stage

Do you think or mearly ponder

Are you longing for the very thing which evades you just as the wind evades just description

Do you wish for peace

Are words your haven do they silence the tounges darting about your mind

Or are your silent screams thoes folded wings

Burned by fire

Guilded by ice

Contorted by air

Enslaved by earth

Loyal to spirit

Will you choose to speak or forever will you scream inside your silence.

      ..well there is a lot of 'color' in your poetry - and the highest compliment I can give any writer - you have invented your own language - and it's a provocative one at that!
