  • Escape from Silence

    Ripped and ravaged
    Scarred and dead
    Silence a savage
    Cancer in my head

    Bent and broken
    Tried, untrue
    For truths unspoken
    I've failed to love you

    The truth withheld
    As honor dies
    My kingdom felled
    By wordless lies

    omission of truth... BiocideJ a lie or no? i like this piece. your first stanza very strong. Title makes me wonder, was there an escape?

      And as to your question of ''lie or no?'' I feel like experience has proved to me that it is.

      Very good to hear. The silence can be harmful. i like many things about this. reminds me of a poem I wrote not long ago. I am going to look for it and post. Tanner just mentioned silence in a poem too. All signs that it is time to dust mine off! Thank you for sharing this one!

      'call to action to myself to change the faults I see within' no greater call than this!! BRAVO!

    Very nice, BiocideJ. A pithy and poetic call to honesty and transparency.

      The sensibility of a penitential psalm in the terse diction of authentic remorse. I find this very affecting.

        Wordless lies. Love that line!

        Striking. Sorrowful. Eloquent.

          I agree. wordless lies is such a perfect strong ending!

            Catching up BJ. Agree with all above and particularly liked your comments about a call to action for self.
