A Silent Voice


A silent voice conveys the absurdity
Of fear instilled
With perversity.
That which the hours have just started
To gnaw
To chew
To eat away with the passing of our
Limited time
Toppling the glass
Half-empty or half-full?
Never mind, in the end
The glass is overwhelmed:
Broken promises burned every day.
Once the rain topples the glass
We shall drink to become
A rainbow of awakening
Our silent voices singing.

  1. Omg! You have a poem titled Silent Voice too? Im starting to feel the creeps…in a good way! The rainbow… Of awakening… All the prisms of colours we can paint ourselves with.
    You seem to interconnect some elements, such as the glass half empty or full, now floding, now raining, now drinking, now in us, now rainbow… Now singing! Only thing is your silent voice seems to refer to repression, to wanting to say but not being able. My silent voice refers to words that are said without any sound. Love this! Will read more later!!! 👏👏👏👏🌋
