Speaking in Silence (Poem)

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


Silent . . .Fading . . .Silence . . .oh, dear silence

In ignorant peace in youthful cries. . .Silence

Lasting . . .loving . . .groping, oh, dear hopeless pain.

Each member of my body cries; My heart barely lives!

Not one, or two, but a small mile . . .oh, Lord, I cry!

Cry, oh, Lord . . .I am beginning to fade . . .

Every drop of rain that hits me, killing me in a darker age.

Silent . . .fading from a past I never knew,

In days of years and tears I just gave you.

Love seemed so senile at our ages of yore

Every day that rises past old, older, and angels new.

Nothing lasts in our past. . .gasping for life.

Today’s heart with teardrops to save. Oh, dear silence.

Writer's summary – is “silence” really muted to the point of not hearing

what it is saying? And so does the other world like us know the same

thing? Read each line with each single letter.

Thank you, Kenneth
