The Silence
7 June, 2004
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


In the silence
the thoughts are not mine
The Darkness and the Light
fight to speak to me
Between the laughter and the tears
I tread softly listening
I hear their stories
I feel their pains

I open my eyes to shake them away
Yet they return again,
with so much to say
In the commotion of the quiet
I sit..
Trying to comprehend
the silence

------- Author's Notes -------

all is not quiet in the aloneness of silence

I See & Hear, As You Do...,


You hear the slence, shouting in your dreams, searching for, reality. I hear the same words to, sometimes, there are pictures, dizzy gray, from the clouds and the moon, sometimes when,I think, I am a wake, I hear and see, the same as you. Your heart is crying out, your soul is speaking out, I hear and see, the same as you do, but, without a sound.

More Than A poem,

true true

the silence of one person is the noise of ones mind turning and thinking some times silence says more then a scream
