My Silence Defines Me

I recorded a couple of my poems spoken in my voice for a friend, I then wrote this to say that I dislike the recordings, and that their’s are beautiful. It also ties into my view that I needn’t speak unless my voice needs to be heard.

.

My silence defines me

I hear your voice

Enchanting the words from the page

Penned by you or I

And I want to try

To make the words dance

And sing

And enchant

I know my voice could

Should be able to

If only I could find it

But it hides

It knows me better than I do

It knows that my silence

Is part of who I am

I am the silent shadow

Hiding in the darkness

From the lights

Escaping only as ink

Or pretty pixels on a screen

Read but not heard.

But you, you have a voice

It makes the pixels breath

And the ink live

And dance

Into ears

And minds

Far better than ink alone

Or pixels ever could.

My silence defines me.

Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
