Jinxie's World, My Dreams, Poetry

Silence

 

Within words

Within gestures

Within expressions

It says nothing

Without words

Without gestures

Without expressions

It says everything

Between the lines

All silence portrays

Words left unsaid

A picture

An action

A reaction

Hidden beneath

Unruly waters

Into the deep abyss

Unspoken

Unbidden

Forbidden

Silence is a beacon

Shedding its light

Onto the path of truth

But you mistake silence

For weakness

For falsehoods

For untrustworthiness

And with your mistake

You sink

Into oblivion

  1. I absolutely love it! I feel a deep connection with this poem because I am such a quiet person and everyone misinterprets and misunderstands me for it… Thus making me more quiet… Wow… ~<3
