SILENCE

Silence is golden
silence is good
the reason behind the statement
is misunderstood.

Is it good to communicate
to explain how you feel
Is it good to verbalize
And make the other person reel.

when you are silent
people think you are mad
when you walk away
you are considered bad.

I am totally confused
I just cannot understand
If silence is Golden
why do I feel so sad.

Silence
the sound of a leaky faucet
trying to understand
meaning of life
purpose of existence

Sometimes we remain silent not to fire the anger more and let it cool. We do walk away not to create a scence or hurt others. As long as you understand and stand for yourself, people will know who you are and in silence sweetness and sour both do play together at all times. A smile makes a difference.

We can never balance life coz either one person always keeps the balance too high or low. Thaz why couples either love or arranged always see that one person tries to take back and let the other to do things they like. It can be mean, but that how we try to say we balance.

Hope you are fine Starry.

communication is essectial but sometimes some things just shouldn't be said... or that's how i understand the saying...

Shiva 4:25 PM  

Silecing the glitter of the stars;
The night rained.

In real silence, not only the words, but all the senses are placid and profundity takes over and invades the self. It's not sadness, but a fear to look within..when conquered is the bliss

Beautiful Poem Starry!

When we have nothing to say, it is better to be quiet ...a nice to way to avoid talking nonsense !

Diana 2:44 AM  

when you are silent
people think you are mad
when you walk away
you are considered bad

Some don’t know we are taking to ourselves in silence, thinking our sweet memories to smiling, forgetting into deep thoughts to know happens around! Silence is for us, to celebrate.

Hi how are you? hope everythin there is fine n abt the poem..i think silence is proportional to expectations..so only unpretentious silence is golden

Ghost Particle 5:28 AM  

//If silence is Golden
why do I feel so sad.//

confuses me sometimes also...of the human nature. bt i tend to think that everyone needs a break. time will answer the rest.

very good read.

Arshi 8:34 AM  

Nice...We sometimes revel in silence, sometimes protest...
Friends speak through it at times...enemies talk with it...it can cut through, it can slice and sometimes it can save lives..
If it is for the people you love (to accept ot protest), follow it by admission..or its misunderstood :)
