A Poem by Cassie Fraga

Its in the silence we begin to know what we truly feel


I don’t like the quiet…

It seems it’s within this soundless

Fact rears up

Half chained

Half awake

Taps you on your shoulder

Starts talking of things you push away

Reminding that you can run from your heart

But can’t hide

Assuring that such purity

Won’t move unless satisfied

I don’t like the quiet…

I like the quiet, but i don't. 'You can run from your heart, but you can't hide, and in the quiet is where we'll most find ourselves. My voices have voices too.... there is wisdom in this and meaningful words. I really like the thoughts, the reflective concepts that it takes me too.
I still like the quiet....

I love it! I feel like he quiet is my enemy sometimes. At night I think I hear things. This poem has a good flow and creates a slightly dark image in my mind of something looking over my shoulder.

Minds are an influential eclipse on the soul at times of heavy emotions. I know this well, but found music in the silence too. This is written so well, clear, and simple. It is all true for me at a time and others at their time also. I feel that makes it more powerful. Wonderful! :)

Yeah I get what you mean. It creeps me out too :P This is a pretty cool way to describe that, though! I like how you call it half awake and half chained C= And how you ended and began it with the same line.

I AM THE GIRL... 1. I am the girl who people say is a "dreamer" or "over imaginative"... they are correct... I am this way because I like the view from the clouds, my world looks more .. more..
