Amidst Silence and Tears

You
Betrayed me
I wept and wailed
In agony
I could die a thousand deaths
And cursed a million times
Amidst silence and tears.

But I chose to simply cry
‘Till the tears run dry
And I could cry no more
I suffered in silence
I was quiet
But I was brave
Amidst silence and tears.

You
Can destroy me
But you can never bring me down
Nor topple my spirit
I am empowered
Amidst silence and tears.

  1. If this is how beautiful your tears are, then I must say let them fall. And if this is how powerful your silence is, I say give it to the world.

    Beautiful writing, Mich. The refrain after every verse catches my attention the most.

  2. The real power of poetry is to give the reader no escape – in this case, I feel the tears, feel the silence, share the dignity, the refusal to cave in, feel the uplifting sense of power at the end as you lift your chin (in my mind) and utter quietly the closing words. Fabulous, just fabulous Mich!

  4. This was such a heartfelt, and moving piece on the feelings of heartbreak! It’s really hard to get over lost love sometimes to be sure. Letting go is hard. But the good thing is that as Davy said, it can make you stronger. I like to think of a broken heart to be like a broken arm. A broken arm heals stronger at the break than it was before. Wonderful post!!! Bravo! Thanks so much for sharing this!!!
