The Silent Duet

The Silent Duet

A Poem by Scarlet Letter

Let me know what you think.

Lifeless they stare
Out at the desolate world surrounding them
Hollowed out sockets
Filled with inky blackness
Never to feel fulfilled
A pair together
Yet so alone...
A bridge that can never be crossed
Separates them from happiness
Lonely, so lonely,
A cry never will be heard
Silent misery exudes
With each passing second
Don't stare
For fear of drowning
In the black abyss
Sinking further and further
In to oblivion

I love art of all forms. The types I practice are writing, charcoal/oil pastels, music, photography, and more. Every time I look at something I see if it would be best as a picture, drawing, poem, or .. more..
