The Pain Of Silence

More by this author
So loud is the silence of death.
So loud is the silence of the unknown.
The silence of fear.

So loud is the silence of nothing.
So loud is the silence of quiet.
Not even the ringing in the ear.

So loud is the silence of the night.
So loud is the silence of the darkness.
The silence of oblivion.

So quiet is the voice of love.
So quiet is the voice of kindness.
So quiet is the voice of reason.

So soon will all of this be gone.
So soon will this all end.
So soon will this

I really liked the ending and how you just cut it off insted af finishing the sentence. (I do that a lot.) I'm really impressed with this poem and I have to say it's one of my favorites.
