Poetry Schmoetry: Silence

Assalamu Alaikum sisters,

I'm entering my first blog fest ever! Also, it's a poetry one! The blog fest is called Poetry Schmoetry. My first entry was Monday's poem, today is the second entry, and i'A tomorrow will be the third and last. So enjoy!


Silence is all I need
after all this
rushing here and there
everyone is piling work on my
I take it as stress
overflowing my frustration level
I want to rest, I want to cry
I know nothing will stop, stay still

But all I need silence
to brighten me up.

thank you,

AMEN! I loved your poem. It perfectly captured the feeling. I need silence too. Not in a "silence would be nice" way, but a "I need silence like I need air" way. Maybe that is why I'm a night owl.

I understand that feeling completely! Silence can be so elusive these days. Glad you joined the blogfest!

I love this! At night, I feel this way. The dark and the silence can be so comforting sometimes!

After a weekend of house guests and parties, I can totally relate with needing silence!

Sign me up for an extra dose of that. I'm thinking of posting that up near my workspace.
I've felt this way too. Beautiful.

I totally know that feeling.
OOoo, we've all been there, haven't we?!? I think this was brilliantly said.
