SILENCE!!!

All the nastiness inflicted upon me
I hanged on, And chose not to see
I could hear the giggle, Turning into a roar
Silence prevailed, Will I ever near the shore

The pent up anger, I wanted to open the gate
Endurance at its limit, I started cursing my fate
Tears trickled down, And wet got my cheek
Silence prevailed, Will the clock of joy ever tick

The golden rays finally emerge, cutting through the dark
The zephyr is here to stay, The thunder stops to bark
The tide has turned, The avenger inside will now manage the flow 
Silence prevailed, It's the lull before the blow 

A sudden tepidness, And I stop to think
Can I not ignore, and let those thoughts sink
Do they deserve so much of effort, or worthy of this glare
A whirlpool of calmness soaks me up, I move on without a stare

I internalised the notes of silence, A beat so mellifluous and dear
Silence prevails, "Silence is golden" - the byword rings in my ear!!!

  1. I think that your poem expresses well the different kinds of silence & the feelings a person can have about it....one can hope that 'silence is golden' will be the prevailing thought.
