Silence

They say that silence speaks volumes

Because it fills up a room,

Fills up your lungs

Drowns you

Suffocating.

 

They say that silence speaks volumes

Because the loudest conversations

Are what you don’t say

Can’t say

Deafening.

 

They should speak of silence and vacuums

An empty space, an absence of matter

Filled with things

You don’t mean

Nothing.

 

They should speak of silence and vacuums

Enabling oppressors to seem louder

Because you were absent

Even when

It mattered.

  1. This is so true, it’s magnificent! A little silence is good to escape a noisy reality, but don’t get tempted, otherwise you could drown in the nothingness.
    I wanted to stop by and tell you I nominated you for the Unique Blogger Award and to say that I read all of your posts without the courage (or in recent cases the strength in internet) to comment. You’re a wonderful writer and blogger, so keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you!
      I’m so sorry this has taken me a while to respond to, I’d fallen a little out of the blogosphere loop but I’m trying to get back in to the routine of writing (and reading) regularly.

      Thank you so much for the nomination, it means a lot 🙂
