The Sound Of Silence
The love is there, the words are not
I have the need, to hear them spoken
Like food upon an empty plate
Its there, its, not, its there, its not
My weakness is that I am human
but, only feel, the sound of silence

The deafening emptiness of silence, however painful, can only serve as fuel for the creative nature of a true poet. Keep them coming Martin. Never let that river cease its flowing, lest it dry up, to never be heard from again.

The time you take to read and respond to anyone's efforts, are the truest gift a poet earns. Yor are all so very, sensitive and understanding. As if, we are all raised in the same house as children. Perhaps we were?

Your poem expresses truth, but on the other hand, I've heard all the words, and rarely seen the actions that express the words "I love you." I see people happy in illusion, and this makes my heart sad. Maybe they need a reason to live or a crutch, but it is false. If one loves in action, the words ought to come out easily like breathing. Thank you for your poem.
