Poem: The Silence

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

The silence is a poem written in Haiku. It is about sitting inside a room alone. Nothing but the silence surrounding you. To find comfort one writes.

"The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel


The Silence

Silence in the room
loneliness surrounds my soul
writing comforts me.

"Silence" by Sarah McLaughlin
