Fear of Silence

Contributed by purplestary on Friday, 21st August 2020 @ 12:20:01 AM in AEST
Topic: abstract

I look around at what remains of a life lived fast,
of love lost, and faded dreams..
and I find mere songs,
soundtracks that still echo the same damn questions.
"lets see how far we/'/ve come" falls meaningless onto the empty canvas now.
But I remember the feeling that I was almost there...
I was on a journey to find myself..
and little did I know, I was letting go.
each piece that fell made not a sound..
my mom always told me I played the music too loud..
I was trying to drown out the demons though...
I didn/'/t know that disowning the darkness
would erase the road to the light...

Now I fear my life is halfway over and...
i/'/m still torn between who I think I am,
and who I used to be But...
I know that who i/'/m meant to be
is still hiding in the darkness..
lost without the light, She/'/s waiting for the moment
that the music stops...
Silence is deadly for broken souls like mine,
but maybe it/'/s time...
time to face the fear of all the unknown
sounds and screams that will echo through
the emptiness of a space and time void of a melody.

But I remember the feeling that I was almost there...

We all suffer this.....
I could be 50x ahead of where I thought I should be and
I/'/d still feel like somehow I blew it.
Is that our way of telling us to overachieve?
If it is that can be damaging in itself.
Many women however place self-worth on being married and having children. We are all good at torturing ourselves..
Very thought provoking write!!!!!!!!!

The rabbit catcher in the wheat
He just sits right up on the gate
Searching souls
Catching butterflies
