The Sound Of Silence

Angry

The sound of silence

can fill a room

the atmosphere

clouded in gloom

anger permeates the air

not said, but its there

Hallo Susan,
Poetry is not my genre - parody sometimes, for fun - but your words truly 'sing'.
I'm putting these comments under your first poem, but they apply to all your words.
Well named - 'The Sound of Silence'. As soon as I read several of your poems, I become more aware of the nuances of silence - so many, so palpable.
Thank you for raising that awareness and giving it such descriptive and 'feeling' words.

Silence

Your silence is provoking

the emotions your evoking

my anger is choking

my pride I'm stroking

Speak now or never

I'm not going to wait forever

nonchalance may ties sever

maybe your being clever

Silence not always golden

fills me with foreboding

my bad side its goading

come on, start scolding

Silence is Golden

Silence is golden

but sometimes rotten

retreat and haven of cowards

their nose pointing skywards

should leave their game-playing offside

sitting on the fence I can't abide

leaving things up in the air

its really not fair

think their being clever

but can friendships sever

so say your piece

a stress release

there's nothing that can't be solved

better than a relationship dissolved
