Silence

Silence has a face
A presence
It stands there
Listening
Waiting
It thinks itself invisible
But I see its grin
Sadistic entity follows me everywhere
Heartfelt protestation
Swallowed mercilessly
Regurgitating
Spat out
Suffocating me with venomous wrath

  1. I see its grin too, I felt it touching my soul too many times and still…when I read your poem, when I listen to your written voice I know that, through honesty and love, we can defeat the heart breaking silence.
    Thank you, Paul, for writing this, every time I read it, I love it even more!
