Voices of the Silence within: A short poem


Feeling sad

Google Images

By :  Swati Chauhan 

When the silence within shouts aloud

the noises outside slowly die out.


You see yourself in the light of truth

and crowds disperse in your mind

The hand you held has left you now

you walk alone, no shadows behind.


 It hits you hard, you wonder what to do

how could it happen, only to you

you held so strong

and you hugged so tight

it was the only stretch left to walk

before you could finish the last mile.


Nothing feels right now

and nothing you can do

all colours of joy and hope

rotten n withered before you knew.


Will these clouds ever leave

will the colours shine again

will you ever step out and say

oh I wish to dance in this rain!

For when the silence within shouts aloud

a cacophony of pain breaks out

Your world changes to never be the same

and you wonder if you would ever live again.
