Painful silence

Painful silence

A Poem by grace
"

you, me, two different journeys but one home...

"
i wish you could hold on tight to me but you
left my hand like you left our childhood too
i know we are not children anymore
but it takes nothing to behave like two

your clothes are wrapped around my pillow
my tears are all over the place
flashbacks from last year of what we did today
now i'm shouting and screaming as if some heartbreak

i guess i'll walk alone but every other time it gets colder
no heavy hand to push off my shoulders
plans have shattered but maybe for good
for what u've gotta be there alone, like a shadow in the woods

cant say no more, the weather may have a doubt
trees falling down, flood pulling my strengths away out of town
there's a soft smell of your touch inside my bruises
and a rhythm follows me calling your whispers and muses 

that one step was a blow on our self built dominos
they fell on one by one in front of my eyes
but my hands were tied while i was dancing on your farewell
with another hand, i don't even remember so well

all of this comes through a path of fury
but on the other side, i'm elated for you to leave for a dream
i wake up everyday and be proud of you to do so
and i wish for the good gates to always stay open in front of you

in the closing, the cake cutting felt like cutting our strings
and you hid your falling drops behind a winning smile
but i could see through, heavy heart, oh how hard you tried
but my promise would stand tall, those strings wont ever fall

now i see your face on my lock screen, 
there you remain quiet like you've never been
no endless knocks on my bathroom door
no songs in cracking voices making my ears feel sore

this painful silence is hurting me
this painful silence is hurting me
oh, this painful silence is hurting me 
nothing but this painful silence is all i feel

i wonder why i had to be like this, 
you're in the world same as mine, but too far from my eyes
unbelievable of how strong is our love and hate
the unbreakable heaven when i see your face

i could tell you anytime, anytime, but can i?
you know how much it takes for a sister to say 
some simple words i might even cry to you
but no words in the world could describe, oh how much i miss you...

It is terrible when people separate and forget what they were.
"i could tell you anytime, anytime, but can i?

I understand the above lines. I need to re-connect with some people dear Grace. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Heartfelt words grace about missing your sibling. I have two sisters. When we lived at home there was some rivalry but we got on.in the main. I shared a room with one of them. We divided it in two right down the middle. When I left home, that's when I realised how much I loved and missed them. All these years later we phone and meet up regularly. You know I just want to say to you, get in touch. If you can't tell her how much she is loved and missed by phone, send her a card, but break the ice.because I felt that pain when iI read your stanzas. You convey your feelings well. You made me think of my sisters and that was nice.

Hey Grace, when i read this poem i started crying, I don't know what it's like to lose a sister but i know what it's like to lose someone you care deeply about and i understand, that silence is the most painful thing any of us will ever have to endure. When i was reading this i could feel your emotions, reading this i understood your bond with your sister. Grace you have a beautiful gift and i think using your gift to tell people how much you loved your sister is an amazing way to share you rare talent. Please keep writing and please take care dear friend.

Yeah of course! you're my friend Grace and i'm always here for my friends
V9 is stunning within all the others says i! the silence bounces of the walls of homes shared when there is loss .. i am so sorry .. any time you write of your sister .. sorry for your sorrow .. you touch my own soft places .. that silence does change over time .. it is an old adage but ever so true .. comfort can be found in being ok alone .. a place our loved ones who have passed over want us to be ... i am certain of it .. God bless you Grace .. wishing you the best of the day
