When No One Gets It

I could speak a million words a day
How much will you believe of my heart
Should even I, when sunlight falls away
Believe all I surrender, or also doubt in part

And silence deafens, louder than a scream
Hollow empty echoes undefined
I close my eyes and pray for more than dreams
A language we both speak is hard to find

dversepoets.com prompt is soliloquy. Something someone says to themselves, when no one else hears it. I’m always taking to myself. Don’t know if I fit the prompt, but its what I got.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    A great poem Mary. I have been there as well! No easy answers… and lots of questions!

    The last line summarizes well the inability to fully communicate. I also liked the association of silence, when attempted communication stops, to a deafening scream.

    Miscommunication is what we try to overcome in conversation and writing…ever since the tower of Babel, I think!

  6. Silence has to be filled… I can understand why we end up talking to ourselves.
