Silence #Flash55Poem

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


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.

(ยฉ 3rd April 2016)


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 ๐Ÿ™‚
