beyond words

it is hard to express
when it comes to things so close to you,
like silence,
 it stays so close to you;
words may fall apart
when silence takes all the tears,unshed,
and all those things you can’t explain
and keeps it somewhere deep,
giving you space to smile, and laugh;
simply because you are not anywhere near
the people around you;
simply because you are dyslexic for words
to explain yourself;
simply because you are blind to see beyond the masks
and so silence stays close, flows around
and inside, words fail to express,
but it is there in every second,
in-between every pair of heartbeats
and so hard to explain...


  1. "flows around / and inside," is indeed beyond words...beautiful...

  2. Beautifully penned. Sometimes we are lost of words to express the right feelings and silence sounds bliss.

  3. Wow! This is soo touching, indeed silence can be difficult to explain but at the same time is so beautiful. Thank you so much for participating :D

    Lots of love,

  4. It is hard to express. Silence is so necessary and too many people are afraid of it. They fill their lives with noise. Very nice poem

  5. Silence is indeed golden, even platinum. Sometimes words fail entirely, good word, thanks

  6. I thought this line stood out for me:

    simply because you are dyslexic for words
    to explain yourself;

  7. I actually think that silence speaks louder than words many times... but many times that's hard to understand.

  8. Being dyslexic, this line stood out for me - simply because you are dyslexic for words to explain yourself - wonderful line
