Shh...

So blind.
So unfeeling.
Ears covered.
Shell in place.

Tap, Bump. Nudge.
Whisper, Wave.

Nothing felt.
Nothing heard.
Nothing seen.

Scream, Shout, Shove.

No reception.
No reaction.

Give me your
shoulders,
hands,
arms,
feet and
smile

To cry on,
hold,
embrace,
run,
uplift me...


Don't speak.
And I'll hear you.

Super job! This poem rings so true. Words can be so empty, so meaningless. People can make promises and vows, but they mean nothing without actions backing them up. I loved how short and simple it was yet the message is so bold!

Very good poem. I love it. It kind of shows how when you're depressed looks tend to speak louder than words. How words will just slip past, never heard. But when they look at you you can just see or feel what they want to say. Either that or I'm in the left feild of the superbowl with my badminton raquet again.
