The Emptiness of Silence

I am still haunted by what once was
Reaching out only to find emptiness
The constant silence ever present
Moves in like hollow shadows
An empty silence within me
Longing to be filled
My thoughts…
Where once was hope…now quiet resignation
and defeat.
No clichés uttered of gaining strength
From the experiences of failure
And of loss
Of forgetting and moving on
I am not hiding behind my sadness
I live that sadness
I still cannot find the words
To express my feelings with depth
And if I could
What difference would they make?
It would be an exercise in futility
All has changed now
You stopped listening
Nothing will ever be the same
The happiness I felt, though transient
Has been taken from me…

JUAN FUENTES said...

Como siempre,las tristezas y las nostalgias invaden todo tu ser,tienes
que intenta superar esas melancolias
que no te dejan vivir

Juan querido amigo, gracias por su amable y sabias palabras. Por favor, no te preocupes por mí, por encontrar las palabras para escribir esta pieza he dado un gran paso hacia la curación de mi tristeza. Ahora puedo ver la inutilidad de aferrarse a cualquier esperanza.
Abrazos y besos

Powerful words Dianne, and thought provoing too x

Ankita said...

that is a nice poem but a bit depressing..is everything all right dear?

dianne said...

Yes, dear Leovi , it would be interesting, I suspect the silence would come in waves and be evident by the lack of any sound at all.

dianne said...

Ines querido amigo, obrigado por suas amáveis palavras. Sim, eu tinha necessidade de ter algum tempo para mim mesmo para reunir meus pensamentos e conciliar os meus sentimentos ... Espero que eu possa encontrar a inspiração para escrever algo novo, algo mais positivo.

Beijos

dianne said...

Thank you dear Laura for your kind words.
Yes a little silence gives us some time to think, some clarity but not good when we are hoping to hear from someone and it doesn't happen.
Un beso

dianne said...

Thank you dear Ankita for your kind words. Yes the poem is depressing, I am expressing the disappointment and hurt I have been holding inside for months.
Don't worry, I will be fine. :)

Dear Dianne,

Look at your eyes
Look at your hands

The words love your heart
The words love your feelings

Because the silence writes your feelings
in the land of your destiny

JUAN FUENTES said...

Amiga poeta,nuestras vidas son muy cortas,por lo tanto no merece la pena
soñar con lo imposible
Un fuerte abrazo

Existe Sempre Um Lugar said...

Boa noite, feliz pelo seu regresso, por vezes temos que optar pelo silencio, este é necessário para nos reconciliarmos com o nosso interior, afim de podermos continuar a ultrapassar o que a vida nos dá.

dianne said...

Estimado Juan , gracias por tus hermosas palabras. Sí, la vida es corta, demasiado corta para esperar lo imposible, y aunque nos gustaría esperar algunos sueños se hagan realidad, no lo harán ... pero aún así, me duele.
Un fuerte abrazo
