Silent Words

My foot takes me to the silent journey,
My foot takes me not
To the forbidden journey,
My heart arouses me with sudden love too early,
The cloud gathers above blue skies to the journey,
The ground scatters above true minds of the many,
Upon the teachings of the hidden many,
My eyes are inspired by nature than any,
My eye-water crawled down to my shoulder,
Questions of unknown realities next to my shoulder,
Patterns of unborn realities
Scared me to the alto,
All broken souls have broken hearts that ought to,
Stay longer in the shadows of love, caught not to
Silence their voices with pieces
Of choices like vessels
Of silent words in their silent ashes,
All broken hearts have broken souls to their edges,
Like a distant child,
Whose life struggled without persons,
All broken minds have stolen memories
In their absence,
And all stolen memories
Have open hearts in their presence,
Whose thoughts shuttered
Their dreams without patterns,
Of many colors,
Their hands shall touch without feel
And their toes, cold without will,
My foot walks me further, to kill
The wonders of a composite souls that lean
On thunders of counterfeit owls with keen,
My heart mocks me never, between
Every line of life, a dream
And the weakness within me
Strengthened me further to the winds
Of innocence, like ants to their means,
That silently search for their needs,
Without words of many thoughts and dreams
Of silent words, silently gathered their pieces
And fly their wings away with silent voices.

    the natural inspirational matters of life that we encounter in every moment of our existence have silent words from within. It is a requisite to life. And the weakness(es) within us strengthen our souls further to the winds of innocence as life prevails to unfold its feathers across faces of humanity, silently. (Report) Reply
