A silence so pure,it beckons to me
It promises endings and finally free
It brings with it comfort
Never questioning me
Would it truly bring peace,
To bring silence to me?

(sigh) Some silence truly does mutter, sweet friend, it is serenity, and through serenity you will find peace and tranquility! (big hugggssssss) This is wonderful, sweet friend, I love it, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Jason, thank you for sharing!



Mayn love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

no silence brought to me lately usually means I haven't been informed...of some darker designs around me..thanks and click, Jason, this is appropriate

a poetic ponderance that only thy muse can answer.
Succinct introspective write...well done poet sir.

Silence can bring peace much closer---and the greatest silence is the stillness within each and every one of us.

Warm hugs,

silence can be so soothing and sweet... golden! but then sometimes it can be bitter and awkward too.
I like this kind of silence, and this poem, good write.

One can only hope,
or better yet,
make it so. *s

Well done.

listen more closely.

You are one to certainly fill the mind with your very profound questions and this one is also a good one to ponder. For me, silence and peace seem very much the same, but I do understand to others silence can be quite tormenting. Again, enjoyed reading.

That piece just made me want to hold someone in my arms and never let them go.  It made me want to cuddle next to someone just to let them know that they are not alone.
Thank you for the thoughtful piece.

Love,
Ladycat
