    silence can kill the flame

              i never saw this coming,
              that's why it's hard to believe.
              one day you say you love me,
              then you say you have to leave.
             
             we spent afternoons on the front porch,
            eating mint-chocolate chip icecream.
            laughing at each others' joke,
              trying to catch a lovers' dream.
               
           we listen to the radio
           and when you;d hear your favorite song.
          i'd smile the slightest smile,
          when you'd start to sing along
           
      (chorus)  but as season's change, and time goes on
                    few things ever stay the same
                    and as silence makes the teardrops fall,
                    goodbye can kill the flame
                
                we spent our nights in total awe,
                 saying this just can't be true.
                 there's noone else on this earth,
                that loves each other like we do.

               then some how doubt filled the room,
               jealousy reared it's ugly head.
               i felt we were a million miles apart,
                but still sleepin' in a single bed

                the darkness hid the tears and sorrow
               we seldom spoke a word.
                the tenderness just seem to fade,
                silence was all we ever heard.

               and as the seasons changed and time moved on
               things just never stay the same .
               and as goodbye causes tears to fall
                silence can kill the flame.........

    true poem. Sometime it hard to get out what you want to say. But, when it right things always seem to fall in place and the silence can become laughter.

    It's true that silence is a slow and secretive killer. I'm grateful we have the gift of writing when speaking is not working for whatever reason. good write!

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
