Silence

Silence

A Poem by Nicholas Hagenschneider

My name hums upon your lips
Like a loose string
Out of tune
Out of place
Not welcomed in your vocalized melody
A mistake
My own ears whisper truth
But my eyes deceive me
To watch you
Plucking the chord
So desperately
So desperate
For it to belong
You plead with your instrument
But I know the truth
And the truth vibrates sluggishly
My name
an echo trapped in an unwanted melody
Otherwise unstained
The answer is clear
I turn my back
On your trembling lips
I turn my back
On your song
It grows faint
It grows sad
I walk
Silencing it
I walk
Silence
...

Feelings are sometimes unheard and unseen, but you bring them out in your own way, poetry. Nice poem, I liked the flow at the end.

No problem.
Your imagination is vast and colorful. Filled with worlds unseen by others until you write them down in black and white.
This piece is refreshing, there are no limits to how it goes, yet you know in the back of your mind it only goes one way like a dead end street.
Well done. ^^
