Written By: Raji Krishnan 

My silence is born
with me – within me
consoles me
all the time
 And I used to love
 This silence
but now, a thunderous silence
some unforeseen one
comes from nowhere
and tries to
break through my thoughts
and fills my mind and spirit
this silence speaks with me
in a language
that my heart interprets
but my mind
fails to relate
This silence torments me
day and night
with eyes that speak
I try to move away from it
But it fills my mind
With strange feelings
 And with reflections of darkness
It attracts me to it.
with these disturbing thoughts,
I try to steal myself away -
inside myself, I try to take cover
 And I cry silent tears
 Unable to break away!
