The sound of silence

By LauraLME
Copyright 2009

The blanket of nullity,
no time or colors
invading my space
swallowing my voice
suffocating my words.
It’s crushing my heart!

Soul’s cords vibrate
with no sound.
Only the blowing wind
in the chorus of wing-beats
through bare branches
on a carpet of leaves
of a winter garden
Rigid of ice and frost
enchanted, taciturn
Icy colored flowers.

…Sound waves
in a tissue of cries
locked up in the deep…
and through the cold walls
of an uncertain night
the sound of silence
screams again.

Il suono del silenzio

di LauraLME
Copyright 2009

La coltre del nulla,
senza tempo nè colori
invade lo spazio
ingoia la voce
soffoca le parole
stritola il cuore

Vibrano le corde dell’anima
nessun suono
solo i soffi del vento
in cori di battiti d’ali
tra rami spogli,
sui tappeti di foglie
di un giardino d’inverno
rigido di gelo e brina
incantato e taciturno
Fiori color ghiaccio.

… Onde sonore,
in un tessuto di urla
rimangono chiuse nel profondo …
e tra le mura fredde
di una notte incerta,
il suono del silenzio
grida ancora.

  1. vivid verses that make me more curious the longer the poem goes on, thanks for stimulating my imagination and forcing me to be honest with my feelings, genius.
