Deafening Silence

Deafening Silence

(post eruption- its anatomy)

 

Mutely speaking in volumes
Tearless eyes capturing views
Unspoken queries sans vocal plumes
Emoting covertly responsive fumes

 

Cauldron of seething red suppression
Transgressions n many an aggression
Rooting and biding to erupt in passion
Readied and honed, crafted to perfection

 

Pain radiated rippling to skin’s every pore
Body and soul writhing scarred even more
Verbal whips broke naïve heart grievously 
Survived sanely muffling sobs constantly

 

Shielding wounds raw not healing
Past exploitations now acknowledging
Betrayals and pseudo charms revealing
Biding, bated breath- for finally keeling

 

Fiery acidic emotions gut wrenching
Ready to vent explosively selves exposing
Molten emotions, negative debris of senses
Manifesting forcefully in deafening silences

 

Wounds at last allowed to heal not bleeding
Cleaned, swabbed, bandaged after cauterizing
Meditative peace, harmony oneness achieving
Comforting silence wrap, shroud like donning

 

Cleansed, no longer intense,
Peace within without
Oneness with universe
Bliss, nirvana, om.

The humble and meek are thirsting for blood.

The meek shall inherit the earth, but not its mineral rights.

To resort to power one need not be violent, and to speak
 to conscience one need not be meek. The most effective
 action both resorts to power and engages conscience.
Barbara Deming American, Author

 

 Mourn not the dead that in the cool earth lie, but rather
 mourn the apathetic, throng the coward and the meek who
 see the world’s great anguish and its wrong, and dare not speak
. – Ralph Chaplin

 

Meek wifehood is no part of my profession;
I am your friend, but never your possession.

Deafening Silence
 By  ——Machine Head

When she looked right into my eyes and said to me
The hurt that you try to hide is killing me
I drink a thousand lies,
To freeze the past in time
I’ve tried to fill this silence up
But now it’s back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I’m down in this hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life

Called life…

When she says that I’m insecure,
I guess she’s right
‘Cause just when I think
I’m sure, alone at night
The agonies come back,
This pain won’t let me be
I try to fill the silence up
But now it’s back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I’m down in this hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that i cry
Keep going down this road called life
Don’t need your sympathy
I just want for this silence
To stop killing me

It’s deafening
It’s deafening
This silence inside me

It’s deafening
It’s deafening
The silence inside me
The silence inside …

I try to fill the silence up
But now it’s back again
It’s empty like a suicide
This pain inside

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I’m down in this hole again
With the laughter I smile
with the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life
Don’t need your sympathy
I just want for this silence to stop killing me.

note: this song’s lyrics got stuck in my head!!
