Silence 4

“Silence can sometimes be deafening”. This poem is about such silence. A silence which emerges from unspoken words and pain. It is about the silence of a woman who cannot speak her heart out and whose silence is echoed through every object around her as if they are lamenting for her pain.

Dripping roof, now does not heed,

its only work: to shed its tears.

The only window, falling apart

suffers pain and screams till death.

Doors with their eyes shut

as visitors knock them no more.

In the corner; a lonely flower pot

with dried petals and silenced rebels.

No one cares for the chair,

That sways in the rhythm of agony.

No one to listen to the lady,

mute she stays, her unsolved problems

her pathetic heart, its unheard cries.

Humming the tones of abnegation, it beats,

Not to live but to die!
