A Silence So Loud

A Silence So Loud

A Poem by LouisianaBird

I have never experienced a silence so loud.
The deafening pound of my heart, and all the insufferable thoughts
Were overbearing and controlling the rhythm of my breath.
Scenarios of you finding out were running a marathon in my oppressed mind.
Glitter seeps through my skin and dampens my forehead,
To the thinking of you finding out;
Who I am.
What I have done,
And what I am not.

I have never felt an affliction so wrenching.
The tears coming out burned, but I let them keep streaming.
Was it the rending of my heart,
Or the blustering scream that I let free,
That stopped the madness?
And let the realization finally come to me.
No matter my decision.
I lose.
I've gained only a sorrowful regret and hatred,
In trade for moments of artificial happiness.
To tell you,
Would kill you.
But not telling you is killing me...

Such emotion behind this piece. It must hurt to not be able to communicate w/ someone you truly care about and love so dearly. You portrayed this with great efficiency. In addition, you were also able to convey how hard it is to tell someone something knowing you will not be looked upon the same in their eyes ever again. To know that you are going to be judged for whatever truths need to be acknowledged. Great write.

Oh the subject here is really in a bind for sure. I am so glad that I thus far haven't felt that kind of fear or guilt. I appreciate the emotion expressed so well here.

i've found substance in your work that is refreshing given your age. you seem to have so much to say and not nearly enough time to get the thoughts out before they fade into the ether. an intelligence shows through that is a real asset to your passion.

i do think that you could benefit from a more casual approach. i'm already impressed but i think you could do more by trying less. i can't wait to see more.

The happiest times are the minutes spent in my mind. The most beautiful I have ever felt was in a daydream where I was completely someone else; someone better. And when the truth hits, and my reality.. more..
