There's another phrase for all you poets to wreak havoc/wonders with.

Incidentally, I once thought it was "wreck havoc." Then for a while, I thought it was "reek havoc."

I am a fool.

Anyway, yes, "The taste of silence." Poem of some sort using that.

I'd like to see it in dark, 'cause Lord knows we always need the help. And again, no self-loathing or violence. Just the beauty of being numb. Nah, just beauty.

And, for those too squeamish to post in Dark, you can always throw something up in Open, or Corner pub, or whenever/wherever/however/what?ever you so desire.

Wow... I'm doing challenges. Cool.

Though this is really sad, if y' understand... Don't know why my past is creepin' in so heavily right now. Blah. The lesson to be learned is: avoid everything male that you don't already know through years of experience isn't dangerous. :P

So:

Too Long; Silence

My mind is great at coming up with phrases from out of nowhere. That's all it's good for, apparently.

I have posted one in Open: Let the sunlight be; the other in Dark: Silence.

Both of them imply "taste of silence" without actually using those words.

Ah, but you get a lot closer in Silence.

Silly.

yet deign i embrace you with meek adoration?
your fragile humanity rised with contrition.
