Poetry – A Brassy Silence.

A free verse poetry “A Brassy Silence”.

Don’t sometimes ya just want to scream, because your insides are hurting? Your heart is breaking, you’re hoping your someone special will listen, take notice. Sometimes the loudest noise you can make is to say nothing. Somehow that quietness speaks volumes.

Her brassy silence was harsh and loud.
It could penetrate the hidden,
a dark place of his mind.
He seemed lost, she could see it in his eyes.
She’d tried to plant the seeds there.
Those seeds, so filled with love.
Some scattered on empty ears,
and others on the outside of his ribs.
So silence became, and was the noise he could hear.
Sometimes her saying nothing,
was her way of saying everything.

  1. Hi, just wanted to let you know about The Blue Nib a totally free resource for all poets. The site is split into two sections. The Poetry Project which is an open site for all to post, has the usual bells and whistles, community/social features/contests. The second part is the magazine which runs an open/frontend submission policy but all work is reviewed by editors before acceptance. I hope you come join and add some of your stellar work to both sites.
