Words – Silence : Short Poems


words
cookie crumble
winds of change
scattered them
and now
all I have is
a quiet ache
a solitary pain
and
a handful of emptiness

*

laid to rest
words
tied in neat bundles
darkness a ribbon

*

you stripped me off my word garment
unraveled it quietly
pulled a good seam i guess
took the braid of thread
and walked away
there wasn’t a single knot
a perfect weave of silence and words
but how would You know 

*

your silence – my words
longing to touch
twirl the unseen thread of distance
around your nimble fingers
bring them close
let them merge

on your lips or mine

*

Ever dealt with naked silence

it works best from a distance

somethings are better when under wraps

  1. Hi Tiku,

    I’ve just started reading your poems (as promised) and they’re wonderful. Just one tiny suggestion. It’s kind of distracting and difficult to read on screen with the floral background. It would be great if you could use a monochromatic body colour just for the post section of your blog. But, then again if I am the only one who’s given you this feedback, don’t bother. I’ll read your poems by copy-pasting them into MSWord.

    Cheers,
    Adi
