a weapon,

used when your too scared to speak your mind


simply to afraid to admit the truth


slience is obscene

it screams truth

more than what's needed to be said is understood when you say absolutely nothing

silence is there behind every stained lie, it comes after everything is said and done. When the show is over and everyones gone

but hearing nothing gives more to think about than anything you could have ever spoke, it hurts more than any wound you could place in ones mind, it fills the doubts in the minds of those who aren't sure what to do, and turns it into certainty of what needs to be done.

this silence is screaming out to me......

saying nothing all in itself is saying goodby

“God, of your goodness, give me yourself; you are enough for me, and anything less that I could ask for would not do you full honour. And if I ask anything that is less, I shall always lack something, but in you alone I have everything”

This is so true. Very good perspective, but maybe work on flow. Poetry can be expressed in so many forms and line styles. Maybe try more of a sonnet. It would really add to the article and make it great. U have a GREAT idea here. I love it.
