Silence #Flash55Poem

Sharing this poem with The Poetry Pantry at Poets United, and with Flash 55 at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.


Silence

I wonder what silence can hold,
Why words just seem to dry,
It takes a lot out of a heart,
That it feels difficult even to cry;
How hard it is to let words go,
Embrace the silence and move on,
If only it was that easy to accept,
Those voices will always be gone.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. It is not easy to write a form poem in just 55 words. This is well done, Leo and carries a sensitive message.

  2. My bestie always tells me – Silence is the hardest argument to refute.
    I cant disagree with that at all!
    The poem is beautiful as always Leo 🙂
