I silenced myself
myself and others
lovers to brothers
I made them deaf

I silenced my voice
and voices of mothers
my sisters’ covens and covers
of the never ending choice

I stepped in silence
to not have to answer
what and why and why her
and what happened to my lens

Silence for my eyes
that need not to see it all
silence to my ears dull
and my mouth full of honest lies

I want and will be silent
to those who do not wait
to those who wait I may
whisper part-truths of repent

Where’s the reason for my silent
(do not) ask, I do not know
under pressure, I bend and bow
guilt of hope lost makes me violent

Wounds I don’t see, silent there
I wish to draw, thousand lines
smelling iron, liquor and pines
caring enough not to care

Silence, voices, winds and hums
so loud that I cannot breathe
deafening so that I flee
feeling my fleet running past

A last drumroll, silence dear
to be honored, to get big
I’ll switch gears, clothes, wear a wig
tongue on the floor, silent fear

Silently dripping, drooling red
silence clicking, rhythm lost
for the silence, hidden costs
here I’ll sit down, sound is dead

A deep sound comes from a hinterland
The voice is of an unknown origin
Neither from up
Nor from down
Neither from left
Nor from right
Neither from front
Nor from rear
It just comes from a hinterland
Ethereal existence I could say
Of someone
Instantaneously known
Indefinitely known
Infinitely known
Subtly known
An elixir of love
It says
Be an agent and convey
I obey, in deference, I obey
Language of silence I speak
I convey what is to be conveyed at this midnight
I be out of mind and sight
Good night!

I just wish people could understand
about my wellbeing without I had to tell it to them.

Because sometimes a little part of me wanted me to hurt myself so that the pain that hurting my mind and soul,
could just go away and replace by the pain from the blood that was dripping all over my hand.

Its better that way.
Rather to be in pain silently and slowly falling apart.
I was having a sudden mental breakdown. That moment I realize how stuck and lonely I am, that I’m always been ignore.

I stood inside watching the rain outside
I stood there and looked up at the sky,
I watched as the rain fell silently
I kept waiting for it to change
I kept waiting for it to change me
For it to wash away something deep inside
I wanted it to wash away this virus from deep inside this earth.
Earth Wash
Poetic T Feb 8
Shallow grave hung,
     Where the forgotten
Lyrically blessed suffocate,
      
     They just scream silently.

But I dug you up,
brushed you off,
          reserectted your carrear.

Now you be trying to hit
From behind with the *****
    That revived you last year

I dug you out,
         I can bury you deeper


you hear.

Don't think I didn't fill in that hole,
                      in-fact I dug it deeper
just in-case you thought that you
           climbed higher than the hole
                              you were dredged up.

RIP, you were exhumed no I embedded
       a ***** as your tombstone,

sorry I dug it a but to deep.


    But your vocal cords were severed

                                now enjoy your rest
and  scream silently you hear.

the wolf howls
the bear growls
the man silently kills

Hidden in the shadows
Weapons at his side
He has her sent
And he follows
Silently he stalks
He moves swiftly across the floor
Without a flinch
There's a knife through her heart
she tries to look at him before her last breath
though there is no one in the room anymore
I got the inspiration for this poem from a movie I watched
