Deep Silence


Deep Silence poetry talks about a lonely state without a loved one. A greater state of loneliness is experienced when a lover is not available.

Deep Silence

He looked out through his window with his eyes focused on emptiness. Makuma could not believe his eyes, it’s been three days since his wife travelled and things are getting really funny. On this day, he was in a different state of mind — near that of intoxication.

The clouds went dark bringing no star,
The moon never showed up to bid me goodnight,
The trees felt pity and waved from afar,
The breeze wallops in my backyard with might.

My window heard my sigh and squeaked in pain,
The clock watch, ticked louder and slowly,
The frogs croaked at random, again and again,
Confused birds told a lonely bedtime story.

My frozen bed gradually melted to the ground,
The fading moment caused the ceiling to give in:
My thought became void in my heartbeat’s sound,
And my eyes blinked out tears down my chin.

So it was, all night without you.
Tis, till the cock crows in essence.
For you’ve left me out of the blue,
Please, do come back to fill this deep silence.
