Captures  

Silence is so bittersweet- anymore

It’s like a winter scene life painted

Hung up for all to see and admire

But the problem is, it never changes

Cold chills come as memories breeze in

Catching me totally off guard like a fog

Pretty soon I get lost inside them all

Feeling like I’m the only one, looking out

At everything moving on- without me  

I’m just left in a world of my own                        

You used to keep these things from coming

When my simple life still had meaning

But all that and I suddenly froze still

Leaving your last breath… in my chills

  1. The progression of these deep-filled verses takes me to my own silence pages. I hope you are doing well. I’ve been away for two months providing home care for my mother so I’m anxious to read more of your poetry.
