Silent Words

in silence…

found my solace in solitude
still to my world… my gratitude
strive, exist and keep on living
in the twist and turn a thorn adorning

in mind…

withheld consciousness in numbness
endured the pains in faithlessness
time hovers each hazing moment
slowly breaking hopes into fragment

in the heart…

dwells remnant of dreams and passion
where fantasy is a nightmare’s illusion
reminiscing of what was the joy it brought
from each chambers beating never sought

in the soul…

from the silence of mind, a heart speaks
a thousand words that soul seeks
hear them from the whispering winds
in whistles of sea breeze, the rhythm blends
