You sit


staring  at your lap.

Your face

reflects sorrows

you will not describe.


is your

only safe

    As I sit here in my silence, I find that your poetry is not only beautiful, but speaks of truths unspoken…Thank you for sharing this with us.

  4. Very reflective. Expresses many valleys in Life. Profound. Brings a clear picture to my mind of that person for many times I’ve been the person described in the poem. A depth of sadness and sorrow so deep that No words can begin to express the inner emotions.

    Well written as always.

  5. I wrote about silence today, too. I like your take very much!

  6. I am wide awake in silence, yet the noisome clatter of others often puts me to sleep.

    few words say it all!

  9. I love this! To me, it captures that picture of isolation and hopelessness I get from depression.

    • Thanks Kayla.

      I just started a novel that explores depression. Not sure where it’s going, but it has been an interesting start! I had no plans to do it, but Dustin and Lydia introduced themselves and insisted I start writing about them. What could I do?
