By , Pune, India
Not a stirring can be heard
No sound is made nearby
Not even the wind whistles
No animal makes a cry

The sun is shining just as bright
The sky is just as blue
The only difference between this place and yours
Is the silence that ensues

Over time the silence has grown louder
Now it causes pain to my ears
This quiet void of emptiness
Has gone on for years and years

A bird suddenly shoots through the skies with a loud cry
It feels out of place here
It knows something is wrong
As soon as he can, the bird flees in fear

The silence was disturbed, though
For a few fateful seconds
But just as soon as it went
The silence fills the place again

There’s an emptiness in this place
The void only sounds can fill
The ever present silence, once welcome
Is now deafening to my ears

i like this poem and the way you emphasize the silence of the place and i thought the image you chose was also a good one for the poem, but i dont know what the poem is suppose to be about or if it has a symbolic meaning for something

no, it doesn't really have a 'symbolic meaning'. it's just a random poem i thought of, wondering how a person with hearing disability would feel.
