A Message; Without the Poem

by Rania Moallem   Jan 19, 2012


Just because I don't speak,
it doesn't mean; I don't know.
And just because I never blame,
doesn't mean I am not hurt.

And not talking with the same attitude
doesn't mean that I have changed;
it only means yesterday you were someone,
but today you are someone else to me.

You see-
my silence doesn't represent my stupidity,
nor my weakness, nor that I have
surrendered to the wounds you've marked-
inside of me.

It only reflects my forgiveness,
and my generosity; because you don't-
no..you don't deserve my reprieve..

    I love how the title says "without" the poem, yet it reads very "poem-like" (okay,I made that word) this is so raw and true,and although it does not contain metaphor the writer did a great job getting her point across in a brutally honest, .. yet beautiful way.
    I was hooked,and I just kept re-reading because write such as these are just so relatable, it gives you that sense of assurance that you're not alone in the world that some people feel the same way you do towards certain things.. I also loved the "oh,no you don't" in the
    ending it gave it more power. sometimes, you just want to read something refreshing, something that impacts the mind yet does not confuse it..AND THIS WAS IT.
    I love,I love,I love

    Title justfies your work & though this is much of a release but at the same time, it holds a very strong message. Really liked it.

    all the best and take care

    I always love sad poems. the title caught my attention. the very first stanza was my favorite. so straight forward. and full of sorrows. because its the condition when someone really in deep sorrows. good work.. i understand the poetry in my own world.... that what i found in it... :)

    Oh this poem is so true hun!!!

    I think the cheating thing comes to my mind again. I feel the words are your way of saying that you are hurt but you are finding the closure and are moving on.

    I know you may not say that itself but the strength of the poem and powerfulness of the poem speaks for itself.

    The poem is quite sad but the words show us how strong you are.

    Awesome babe
