silence tears at secret affections,
ripping down threads of hope.
glances bring mockery,
and smiles gleam with confusion.

words are nothing,
shelled with meaning
but filled with the discovery
of a reality less than perfect.

uncertainty devours the soul
and heavy silence runs among anger.

------by me,MELISSA

Melissa, Great Poem. I really liked the "words are nothing.......of a reality less than perfect."

------------------



"I Believe we are divine by nature." -Jewel

"Some people react physically to the magic of poetry, to the moments, that is, of authentic revelation, of the communication, the sharing, at its highest level....A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape and significance of the universe, helps to extend everyone's knowledge of himself and the world around him." -Dylan Thomas (1913-1953)
