Silence
By: Noah Eaton
10/8/04
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
...questions,
they all come spinning,
around your head...
.
.
.
...sometimes it's hard,
breathing on your own,
we feel our lungs mold into clay...
.
.
.
...and when you spin around,
searching for the voices in your head,
they all bleed together...
.
.
.
...hallucinations fill your mind,
and you can't tell,
if you're speaking to God,
.
.
.
and I would,
if I could,
break this silence...
.
.
.
...if you can speak first...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
...you're ashamed,
to look in the mirror,
as you're vomiting distress...
.
.
.
...watching illusions stare from behind,
see you undermined,
lost in the search of an answer...
.
.
.
you're sick,
and you never realized it,
until you were infected...
.
.
.
I can see you're afraid,
afraid to step out of the shade,
and break away...
.
.
.
and it's OK...
.
.
.
.
.
it's OK...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
LET IT OUT,
.
.
.
give it all away,
.
.
.
LET IT OUT,
.
.
.
give it all away,
.
.
.
FAITH IS AWAKE,
FAITH IS AWAKE,
FAITH IS AWAKE,
.
.
.
and silence is speaking...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
...you're in,
a crisis of faith,
and it's hard,
to distinguish white from grey...
.
.
.
...spirits stand like strangers,
where you lie in bed,
you beg them to leave,
but you summoned them in your head...
.
.
.
...they all stand straight,
you're waiting for an answer,
they say nothing,
you feel the spirits no longer are speaking...
.
.
.
...but the moment they disperse,
they can see the tear,
falling to your pillow,
from the face you tuck away...
.
.
.
.
.
And I would,
if I could,
break this silence...
.
.
.
...if you can speak first...
.
.
.
through this blindness,
.
.
.
through this darkness,
.
.
.
through this madness,
.
.
.
through this iridescence,
.
.
.
THROUGH THE DESOLATION,
.
.
.
THROUGH THE ISOLATION,
.
.
.
THERE COMES CONSOLATION,
.
.
.
SILENCE MOVES FASTER,
WHEN IT'S MOVING BACKWARD, HEY,
.
.
.
.
.
LET IT OUT,
.
.
.
give it all away,
.
.
.
LET IT OUT,
.
.
.
give it all away,
.
.
.
FAITH IS AWAKE,
.
.
.
FAITH IS AWAKE,
.
.
.
FAITH IS AWAKE,
.
.
.
and silence is speaking...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Tapping on your shoulder,
as you sleep,
is only the wind,
of my voice...
.
.
.
.
.
answering...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

Noah, my friend, it was so good to read

Yes!  "Silence is speaking."  Get still and you will hear it.  I love this line so much, Noah.  

Yes! Our answers come from silence.

Great work.

How very true this is... how lucky is one who has such understanding and unwavering support. *S* I like this powerful write very much, my friend. *S*

I kept picturing that famous painting "Silent Scream" as I read this gripping poem! Good to read this offering from your illustrious quill!

Love, Light, and Faith,

Very much enjoyed this entire tapestry of silence and the above verse just stood out the most for me.  Very much enjoyed.

As always Mistletoe, you have touched my heart.  Just reading this poem almost sends a tear to this lonely lover's heart.  I feel these words as if they were my own.  Love is all that comes from within whenever I read any of your words.
