Dead Silence

When I woke up this morning ~
Your words were still ringing in my head.
Replaying them from the night before,
I still can't believe the things you said.
And inside my soul is drowning ~
In the tears of my broken heart.
While you don't even seem to notice,
that our world is crumbling apart.
You just proceed on with the day ~
with no apology to mention.
Somehow you don't feel the need to say,
or even glance in my direction.

The silence is so deafening ~
The tension can be cut with a knife.
I just can't believe it's come to this,
I thought we'd be together for life.

And I just can't help but wonder ~
What I've done to deserve such hate?
As I watch the years we've invested,
Evaporate in a single day.
Some say that silence is golden ~
Sometimes things are better left unsaid.
But in this case silence is deadly.
Because our love has come to it's end.

you got into my head with this one...i told you the situation and then wrote it....have had this happen...great "hearing" it from your perspective



Bobbie - This was my reality not too long ago .. I wrote this right when it was occurring - so the emotions are real and strong. I since have found the true love of my life here on OP - Nicole is my saviour, without her I truly don't know where I'd be today - if you haven't read her .. visit her pages she is listed under Maleficent and QueenOtheKnight. Thanks again my friend! Much appreciated! :) Ken

I felt the emotion in this one ... definitely hit close to home as well. Good write, thanks for sharing!



Thanks so much Commonreactor! I wrote this on the day it was actually happening. ut, Love can be so Fckd up - after many yrs it can become just like this - if one lets it. Thanks again, Ken

great flow. not an original genre of poetry which makes creating such a great piece more difficult. great job, actually gave me chills. TEN!



Thanks LG! I appreciate it! :) I write in many genres .. I do however tend to be darker than most. I have quite a few dark songs aand poems ... such as; a gothic epic called the Damsels Demise, Satana, Unholy Union, to name a few ... Thanks again my friend! :) Ken

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
