Your Silence


The silence I hear from you tells me
A story you hesitate to put into words;
Neither you nor I am a fool so great
As not to know the truth!
But we do fool ourselves on the outside,
Trying to justify what is happening;
As life has enfeebled us, we dare not now
Tell one another that there is love.
But never mind; for both you know and I know
That the trembling silence has
Spoken of two souls intertwined.

Beautiful poem of two being in silent and unspoken love aware that the other knows the feeling.

Silence, knowledge of self and introspection has brought the best out of you or is it love? Beautiful expression:)

Ayesha Parveen said...

Hi Holy Lama :)

Thank you for visiting my blog and for commenting.

About your question...it is love, because true love includes knowledge of self, silence, introspection and all other beautiful experiences.

Do come again.

Best wishes :)

A marvellous poem...Silence has been my favourite theme...It was a treat reading your poem with all "the trembling silence" contained in it.
Thanks for sharing.
