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'm glad you enjoyed this piece. Communication is so much more than the words themselves.
People express so much more through silence than through words...Reading between the lines, understanding the silences...not all can or even try. those who do are keepers. Beautifully written.

Thank you so much. Yes there are many who can't read between the lines and some that don't want to.

Thank you. Sometimes I have edited conversations while the real ones are going on in my mind.
oh boy, those pregnant pauses, and the uncomfortable silence for the speaker...or the subject of the poem---or both---
that pondering can be deafening.

Yes the pondering can be ear screeching
I don't know why i smiled at the last line, maybe because it reads like a mystery or creepy! Logic spiritual speaks in your words.. with, in places a touch of drama to magnify what you're thinking,
' Read carefully to what is written ~ Emerged within those words ~ Is a whole chapter ~ That has already been published .. ' Food for thought indeed. Many thanks for sharing such perceptive thoughts.

Would be too complex for me!
Eyes do reveal the truth as feelings reveal what is hidden. And for sure, we have to read people carefully. Excellent...:)................

You are welcome. ....::::)))))
Oh my, this is another beautifully penned piece of your heart ... and I think I already know "how she feels about him ~ but, what to do about it is the real issue.

... so, yes please "Pause", take a deep breath and do what you know is the right thing. I've always been of the belief that "if it's meant to be - it will be".

Please take care & continuing allowing your heart to speak through your poetry.

Blessings my friend, 🙏
