The Pauses

The Pauses

A Poem by Poetic Beauty

Between the spoken lines, there are pauses
Listen carefully to the silence
For there is a whole world of conversation
Going on between those pauses

Read carefully to what is written
Immerse yourself within those words
There is a whole chapter
That has already been published

Look deeply at the pictures sent
Galaxies are created with brush strokes
The eyes will reveal the truth

On days without communication
Think intensely about the quiet
For she is having an internal debate
About how she feels about you

Those pauses I find, are small recallibrations in the bigger picture of how we are thought of and think of others, just as you so eloquently say. They should be taken by the one talking as a chance to pause also and perhaps clarify their intentions, as it may lead to a permanent judgement if not corrected.
Perhaps you're ahead of your time, as we all acquaint ourselves with more and more silence, with plenty of time to deliberate the enforced silence, as well as all those silences we gave the benefit of the doubt to before.
All this time on our hands has certainly led me into rewinding some conversations and listened to those silences again... As well as regret not putting my own mouth into silent mode.
Well! Say something? 😷

I can't think of anything more important, when it comes to communication. You spell it out in a friendly, eye-opening way. Back when you posted this in 2017, maybe one could read it with the idea that we'd be face-to-face, looking at the other person to watch his/her pauses. But in 2021, with people feeling isolated becuz of social distancing, I feel the pauses are more important than ever. I recently iced a friendship becuz of the pauses (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Yes these days the pause are on a grander scale and more elaborate. So much not being verbally said

It is most important to me what people don't say than what they do. I like the way you have rolled the silent pauses into an art form here. Thank you for these many thoughts and the wondrous share!

That you. There is a whole world of conversation within our minds that no one hears
Some conversations are empty of words. Very nicely done.

Thank you. We all have thought going on in those pauses.
I do agree dear friend. Three daughters, six sisters and a wife. I learn what my dear Grandfather taught me. Better to hold silence than awake a tiger. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
