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 have many thoughts that churn within my mind. I don’t always convey my deeper most inner thought.. read more

This poem is pretty powerful. I like the way you've opened our senses into a new realm. The way this story ends really grabbed my attention and left an impression that will stay with me. Great work.

Behind every conversation is a whole other one going on within someone’s mind
So I read this twice and it's one of the best you've done in my opinion. All of your work is good bit tou sent me something cerebral with this verse. Something that tells me you listen to the infinite volumes that the silence in between breaths has to offer as well.
There immense stories in the spaces between.
Thank you for sharing with us and pleaase keep up the excellent work.

Your friend, Wesley.

Within every conversation or silence there is many thoughts and emotions going on internally
The most important things to hear can be heard between pauses, it is just most people keeps on talking and don't know how to listen. And I heard my own voice saying those last two lines... the internal debates that I don't know how to end. Thanks for this wonderful piece. ;)

In those pause is a whole world of conversation and thought. Thanking you for reading
My favorite aspect of poetry is vagueness. I can feel this.

Thank you for reading this poem.
Pauses are often fruitful and silence often not silent, the in-betweens are what illuminate us given the chance we reflect...beautifully layered with deep meaning :)

Thank you so much poppy. There is a lot said without being verbal in those pauses
Yes, the "pauses", fraught with content...love how your poem captures this anomaly. "Listen carefully to the silence"- very good advice! Lovely and well-penned.

There is much said in those silences
Quite often its folk who say the least, say most!

Inference is perhaps the key rather than what's actually stated, cerebrally penned, a philosopher's paradox!

There are many things that are left unsaid.
I have heard about "reading between the lines," the thoughts and feelings unexpressed in words. These pauses, these beautiful places of truth, may we learn to look for them more often. Thank you for the encouragement to open our eyes and our souls to them.

I'm glad this has made you think about the pauses.
This is fine writing indeed. I think sometimes silence conveys more than words do... But only few know how to decipher those pauses...
Beautifully penned.

You are correct. Those silence are much more complicated than the word that are written or spoken.
As you so poetically point out, there is far more to communicating with others than just hearing their words. The pauses, intonation, body language, and facial expressions mean at least as much as their words.
