TO EVER SILENT BE

TO EVER SILENT BE

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Mysteries of the dead.

"
TO EVER SILENT BE

The driving force of mortal dreams
Lie hidden deep within the soul
And every night they seek to find
A place they've never been

The story starts and ends the same
And every smile begins to fade
Within the light of darkest night
Where hopes lie cold and still

The dead cannot bespeak their claim
To any wish of faith or whim
But must attune their heart of stone
To ever silent be.

I've always been a fan of ever silent be, right up to the point I have no choice, and then I'm sure I'll think of plenty to say, if I get time to.
The mortal dream and spirit are both things we have no control over, yet remembering the dream at least gives a feeling of some kind of presence, which sounds a bit better than the game over version.
One things for sure though, if death is like dreaming, I'll be happy. I wonder if you need to pre book extra pillows 😀

This is one of those poems for me that's best spoken aloud. It's funny but I can still hear the voices of some of the ones of whom have passed in my mind not everyone, but some voices never seem to go:) a bleak quality of feel comes at the end of this poem but in it's unfold to me is a hidden statement that the motions of movement set long ago motion mine today

Thank you kind sir for a beautiful review of this write! ~Sharon
I had to read this slowly twice before I could figure it out. From your byline comment I think it's about "the dead" but while reading it I felt it was about "the living" -- the way some can obsess about dying. My understanding started off with the opening line -- "Mortal dreams" I took to mean dreams about our mortality, which would require a warm body. That's why this seems like it's about a living person obsessing about death more than being about "the dead." Or it could be about a living person being haunted by "the dead". I love the last line of V1 becuz it makes these slithering visions seem kinda playful yet sinister. In fact, both these poems of yours I've just read have that same nicely blended sensation of being playful & sinister, a juxtaposition I love! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I still hear my departed loves ones in my mind. I memorise their voices and listen for them. One thing is for sure, I feel their presence, often when least expected. When that happens it is a wonderful thing. Thank goodness for memories. They sustain us when the going gets tough, and it does. Another beautiful, heartfelt poem Sharon from your talented classical pen.

No, they can not speak to us directly, but we feel their presence and I believe they can guide us. The flow and rhythm of your words is consistently wonderful. Kudos. Lydi**

they may be silent, but we still feel them, we know they are around, maybe as guardian angels...
I still feel the ones I have lost...they are forever with me...
such a hauntingly beautiful piece here, Sharon,
