The Silence was Deafening

The silence was deafening,

The music was stifling;

covering, vanquishing,

trumpeting, blasting.

The silence was blaring,

The music was muted;

Blasting in ears,

Ringing in heads,

Silent to the taste.

The silence was present,

The music drifting further;

you couldn't hear a sound

while it was blaring in your ears.

The silence was deafening,

amazing, astounding;

The music was stifling,

tranquil, muffled, soundless.

A wail of silence,

A pause of music;

Weaving and floating,

Twisting and looping,

A melody of silence,

The music, empty space.

This was just something that sprung to my mind during English class. I liked the idea, so typed it up, and the result pleased me.

I have new work coming out every week. Yaay.

Amazing!! So when I was reading this, because of your words I literally heard certain parts "loudly" and then there was no sound at all in the soft quiet lines. Great job!
