dead silence

I used to speak my words

To the winds at night,

But recently I’ve stopped–

I realize that I have been saying

Nothing,

And I had been saying

Nothing

For some time;

For what does the man who is lost

Have to say?

Perhaps my silence

Speaks

More than my empty words

Ever could.

  1. An excellent poem Chris. Sometimes silence can say much more than words, which is why we need to be careful with the words we do use.
