Silent Love

Silent Love

A Poem by De'Andre

Who would have thought silence could be so strong


In silence I speak, in the shadows I lay

For my moment in time each day I just pray

I stand up to speak but nothing I say

I feel like I’m broken in more than one way


I sit quietly, but shout out to all

I’m in quite a bind with my back against the wall

I’ve picked up the phone; have yet to make a call

I wonder how long it will be before I fall


I want just a little more than what I have now

It’s cold like the winter; the snow I must plow

A speech I must give, I’m still stuck on just how

I have not the courage to even take a bow


Everyday I sit quiet holding on to how I feel

I’ve shuffled all the cards, but can’t seem to deal

My heart says to speak, my mind says to seal

My emotions, I think, won’t ever reveal


Love has taken its course; it’s just not on mine

Over the time that I wait, I look for a sign

Variety of choices, only one seems so fine

Everyday I hope that our paths would align

Wow! Andrew was indeed right, you are a fantastic writer. :) I love your writing, I'm looking forward to reading your new pieces, haha now that I have the time that is, between kickboxing class, and working yards lol. But I promise! I will, and take heed I NEVER break a promise, ever. It's as simple as that, people who do are just liers, and I refuse to be one. So, look forward to some extra reviews! :)

Great poem De'Andre. Has a Lewis Carol feel to it. Deep and introspective piece. Good job.

Silence is golden but sometimes it's a pain. Silence can sum up a feeling or destroy an entire nation. Silence is one of the strongest actions anyone could take. A great write, and better read.

Yes when we wait too long. Can be a unhappy ending. A very strong poem. Hard sometime to do things for fear of rejection or sometime being accepted. I like the internal struggle and knowing it was too late. A hopeful ending. A excellent poem.
