Silence

Within words

Within gestures

Within expressions

It says nothing

 

Without words

Without gestures

Without expressions

It says everything

 

Between the lines

All silence portrays

Words left unsaid

 

A picture

An action

A reaction

 

Hidden beneath

Unruly waters

Into the deep abyss

 

Unspoken

Unbidden

Forbidden

 

Silence is a beacon

Shedding its light

Onto the path of truth

But you mistake silence

 

For weakness

For falsehoods

For untrustworthiness

 

And with your mistake

You sink

Into oblivion
