Poetry

Can silence grow louder?

Can silence become even quieter?

Can silence save you?

Can silence suffocate you?

Is there ever truly silence?

Isn’t there always a voice

Even if it is just heard in one’s own mind.

Silence is not a smallness,

Silence is ever 

more enormous 

than the loudest spoken word.

If you only listen for it.

You can hear

Silence

Everywhere.

  1. That’s so true. It really is. My silence grows louder and louder. But the more I talk the more I feel like I’m drowning, but I would rather talk than be silent. Silence is a killer. It’s a killer of life and of dreams. Thanks for sharing. Hugs!! Very beautiful piece!!
