Silence is so perfect

The silence between us
is dense, deep
mysterious, undivided  
frozen with
infinite spell of possibilities 
you are not impossible to reach
yet I do not wish
to break this tranquillity 
it’s purity is so vulnerable 

I love my freedom  
I prefer to float 
on the other side
of this mystic silence 
love is so momentous
silence is so perfect .

    A poem that flirts with the tension between silence and words and spells out the eternal dilemma of the poet with admirable brevity : when are words better than silence , and how many ?

    Silence is indeed mystic, for we still communicate through our silence! A thought-provoking piece!
