Obnoxious Silence

Obnoxious Silence

A Poem by C.M. Waters

I hear the silence
ringing and ringing
like a siren
that will not cease.
All my troubles
consuming my soul,
clawing their way
into my grand desires
as I stare blankly
at the white walls
of this prison I call home.
I must let out my emotion.
I must release my troubles
and cleanse my soul
before it turns me
into the monster
I fear to face.
But who will hear it?
Who will respond
to my emotion in written form?
Who will answer
all the questions
continuously flowing
into my mind,
one after another,
when it is only me
and the obnoxious silence?

I definitely think it could be elongated to better communicate the actual troubles and such of the voice. As it is we only have the knowledge that the voice is upset. I think that "obnoxious silence" as sort of an oxymoron, is an excellent way to communicate the voice's feelings on the absence of noise in its current state. If that is the sole focus of the poem I think you have done a stellar job. Bravo!

I like it. :) I think it's really good and you could even get more into it if you wanted. Or write more from it. :)
