Silences Resounding

Words are the only weapon I have.
Silence is the only shield you've got.

Not once did you stop me.
From accusations I threw at you.
Could it be that it was true?
Or was it your mere resignation?
It remains to be a mystery.
That I shall know not.
Your absence has made it clear.

Your words slice through my heart
I remain silent..scared.

My speech would've betrayed me.
Told you my heart's true desires.
The truth shall remain a mystery to you
You deserve a content life.
Not one of mourning and sorrows
Only a few breaths shall I take
Silent I will be for eternity.


  1. This is so bewitchingly sad and yet so powerful in implication! I like the fact that you have left the identity a mystery. It can apply to so many things :)

    1. I don't really know myself. I didnt really think about it as I wrote this one. Thanks Ankur!

  6. "Only a few breaths shall I take
    Silent I will be for eternity" - these lines will resonate against my mind for the next few hours now.brilliant.

  7. This actually happens when you're in a serious relationship. I really appreciate your skill to express reality in your poems.
