134 – Silence

Silence can speak a thousand words
Words never spoken words never heard
A stillness that shows no expression
Written in the heart but never pronounced

Silence hides your feelings
Denies you love
Masks your anger
Covers your sins

Secretive lips with gazing eyes
Verbal thoughts paralyzed
Expressions of love you fail to mention
Never brought to someone’s attention

Never revealed kept in a dream
You continue to play out
With nothing to say
You remain silent
“In silence you can’t hide anything
…As you can in words”
August Strindberg
The Ghost Sonata
