Words of Silence
Creeping venomously from your deafening silence
Doubt rears its ugly head in a faint voice of defiance
As I stand stupefied in confusing thoughts lost
And wordlessly suffer every pang it cost.
My thoughts eddying around in blind uncertainty
For how could anyone hurt other purposely
I have been waiting for days and scarcely a word
Only silence of words unuttered and unheard.
Cumbersome silence spells the impending doom
And I stand alone in this awful space of gloom
Smothering the pain ignited by endless desire
With raging tears extinguishing the crimson fire.
And yet experiencing pleasure beyond my imagination
When in my dreams, I can hear our endless conversation.
Brushing aside doubts, I step into the mysterious silence
Gathering my happiness, I sprinkle it like diamonds.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”— Rumi
