Silence

BLISS

Until the moment
Turns into nostalgia
Two poets speak
Without words

Your mere glance
Expresses emotions
I could only dream of capturing
With plain letters

Your silent smile
Rests on my lips
You wear my love
On yours

The silence
Is our only witness
When our hearts vow
Without metaphors or similes


and the way
Your hand searches for mine
In the stillness of the night
… wordless poetry.

AGONY

A weary heart hides
Within the shadows of ebony
Still waiting for the pianist
To place her fingertips
On the ivory keys
And pierce
The deafening silence
Of an unwhispered goodbye
With a melody that a heart
Wishes to hear
In order to sing again

Unspoken words haunt me
I will listen to them
I will interpret them
I will cherish them
Until
They will eventually heal me
When I learn
How to compose music
Out of silence

    1. Thanks, Sarah. I wasn’t sure what to post. I haven’t been able to finish my newest poems and although there are many poems from the past few years; I didn’t feel like sharing any of them today. After going through my notebooks, I noticed many lines about the silence… and instead of editing either “Bliss” or “Agony” – I decided to bring them together.

    Noora, these lines are so complete,
    so nuanced and beautiful they could
    almost stand alone as poems,

    really wonderful poetry from, as always.

    1. You are too kind. Thank you! I wasn’t even going to post them at first, because I thought that they were not ready…. but my poems never are. lol. I could “sculpt” them until the end of time. Still, something in me urged me to release them. Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend.

    This is heart-wrenching. Bliss was beyond lovely. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Thank you for reading and liking my poetry, Noora – it’s lovely to know that someone’s enjoyed reading them, particularly when you write such beautiful poems yourself. So glad I took a look at your blog – ‘Agony’ is my particular favourite, I thought the image of the ivory keys was particularly powerful.
