6 Echos of Silence

one day
             my silence
                             will echo

it will start as a whisper
of something forgotten
as you walk into a room
and look about
for what?
you can't remember
it will nag at you
until you shake off the whisper
it will eventually come back to you

it will grow to a soft hum
of a once heard song
that lingers at the edge
of your mind
you can feel the notes clash
refusing to take form
it will tickle your senses
until you push away the hum
into the recesses of your mind

one day
             my silence 
                             will echo

it will build within you to a shout
that whisper
that hum
will finally take shape
into words long ago read
and you'll be drawn
to rediscover them
as you begin to search for me
the nagging whisper will return
as you find my lost words
the tickling hum will resurface
it is then
that my silence will be so profound
it will echo deep within your mind

one day
             my silence 
                             will echo

of this i have no doubt
for there is no room 
for doubt
it is not something i can afford
my words have power
these are things i cannot afford to loose
they are at my very core
without them i am nothing
and so i cling to the idea 

one day
             my silence 
                             will echo

  1. There is nothing quieter than a poet who does not write.

  2. love the repitition...and no we can never lose the words...

  3. Maybe I'm just strange, but I pictured a character in flowing gowns almost whispering this to someone, over idea with the silent echoes.

  4. A very intriguing poem, and I like the pulls the reader closer...which is Always! a good idea with poetry.

    Very nice!

  5. It's already echoing and building because your words are brilliant.

  6. I really like how you dropped the lines "one day my silence will echo." It put a very unique style to the poem and the repetitiveness made the poem speak....strong words
