The silence…

The words stabbed her again

As if being hit by a sword;

Tearing her heart into pieces

And her dreams into shatters;

She lay in a pool of sorrow

Wanting to run away from the madness;

The silence was loud

Echoing her chaotic breathing;

A warm hand gently stroked her,

There were no words but just a hug

No tears but an acknowledging smile

The clasp firm and comforting;

The silence was pregnant

With conviction and sincerity;

Her heart started breathing lighter

The world suddenly seemed brighter;

She could see the light in the darkness

Despite the frenzied hues all around;

The silence was profound

With inner peace and strength;

The hand  lead her through the tunnel

The stride was small but firm

The pace fast but steady;

The silence was a symphony

Of two heartbeats singing in sync

Of two souls performing as one!

  8. In the silence you had a chance to feel,
    The strength and comfort of a guiding hand,
    You weren’t alone as you broke into the light,
    Two heartbeats to make things right.

  9. Two souls performing as one…. I think it’s ultimate .. you reminded me of some beautiful lines shared between Andrie and We the Living by Ayn Rand.. ( Hope the names are right) I read about 32 years ago.. it talks about souls of friends having same roots.. thanks the words suddenly glowed in my mind even after such a long span of time.. you poem made it happen.. just a suggestion.. poems come from Heart.. nothing from heart should ever be rated… for the fear of these getting berated unintentionally.. keep writing..

      Take your advice. You are right. Shall remove the ‘rating’ part.
