A Poem by Warren L.G De Mills

S:    Swiftly, Sorrowful Silence Swallowed the Smile

        of her Sickly Son.Sweating and Shaking in his 



I:     Insult to Injury Insists It must Insure Impending 

        death to all Innocence In him


L:    Like a Leeching Leopard. Leprosy sucks all

       Life, Lost within his Languid muscles. Lamenting

       in the Lake of tears is a Lucid Lesson Lately Learnt.


E:   Etched on the Edges of her Exhausted heart are Endless

      Eulogies composed to Ensure Everyone remembers the joy

      that once Emanated from her son in the End


N:  Now the Numerous Numbers of his days shall Never again be counted.

      His minutes are Numbered. Nasty is his bed. A Nuisance are his mother's

      Never-ending tears.


C:  Curses Caress her Crystalline Crying eyes. The Chronicles of a Causeless Crusade

     begins. Crucial memories Circle her Crushed mind as they play symphonies

     of a Crying Choir's Chorus. This Cold Chapter's Crumpled pages in a Crumbling Codex

     Comes to a Collapsing Close.


E:  Energy Exits this once Excellent young man. A furtive quietus Enters 

     leaving no room for doubt. her son's life has come to an Early End.

Amazing and really so professional! I admire the way you managed to make a little poem of each letter, and the word "Silence" become so meaningful! I liked specially the verses with letter C. Beautiful!

Creative way to write. Each line gave a vivid detail on what is happening to the poor soul, it's fascinating.

Very powerful writing, alliteration ornate' s the poem as a woman wearing jewelery.Excellent usage of words running throughout the theme,Marvelous work .!!

I liked the way, when in each of your paragraph that stood for a particular alphabet of the word SILENCE, you used a bold initial for every word in that para beginning with that particular alphabet. Very well put and extremely well articulated.

Wow!!! I loved the way you formed this poem around each letter in Silence. How you described his sickness and how those around him were affected by his death. The struggle, tears, misery, pain, fear and his last moments. This was truely a work of art. Just...WOW!!! :)

Wow the alliteration in this is so good. Very nicely done, as well as how you used the word Silence.
