Silence of Time: Serene Appearnce

by xPerfect Chaosx   Jan 4, 2008


Treading the silence
With uncertain strokes
Certainty washed away by doubt
Confidence stripped away by fear
Smooth and cool silence flows toward infinity

Forever tied by indifferent exposure
To sins atoned that aren't yours alone
Memories hold hostages by links to the past
A past best left forgotten

Raging seas of noise slows the travel to silence
Calm and invoking bittersweet numbness
Sinking deeper and deeper into the taciturn
Hear no evil, know no evil
Hear no purity, know no purity
Hear nothing, know nothing

Deeper and deeper, falling headfirst into memories
Floundering to keep surfaced
Failing to stay grounded
Captivated by recollections of long ago
Quietly sinking to the bottom of time

Suspended in motion, moments turn to years
Replayed over hours as they turn to minutes
Further slowed to seconds
Every detail as clear as the instance of happening

Anger loudly blares inside the silence
Sorrow slowly echos and dies out completely
Pain sporadically bursts in and out, almost forgotten except for the scars
Emotion shrieking inside your memories
Better left unrecollected

Mute the blur of time spent
Calm the raging pistons inside your mind
Follow deeper into time
Drown in the silence

Court the demons well versed in torture
Lead the way to better feeding grounds
Of despair and broken trusts
Fragmented memories of forgotten wishes
Roaming the silence of time

Asphyxiate in the quietude of eons
As time moves peacefully forward
Eradicating times once held so dear
Lulling into deep sleep
Forever in serene appearances

Okay. Here it is. I was in the mood to write and it's so quiet as of now that I feel like I'm drowning the silence. So I guess that is where this poem came from, long times spent sitting up remembering. I really really hope you enjoy it please r/r/c!!! Constructive criticism is always welcome but one liners are ignored!! Thanks again for reading!!!

    You're back! <3 Thankyou for your kind words on Raw, by the way.

    Anyway. I like how it starts off so slowly and builds to this manic crescendo before levelling off.

    I get the impression of an immortal that's long since ceased to be able to care about anything because they've lived so long, and yearss eem so short.

    And about the first comment thing, barely any of my stuff gets a review yo. XD

    Suspended in motion, moments turn to years
    Replayed over hours as they turn to minutes
    Further slowed to seconds
    Every detail as clear as the instance of happening

    ^ suspended in motion...moments turn to years...that actually makes me think of my best friend. how quickly time passes...

    Anger loudly blares inside the silence
    Sorrow slowly echos and dies out completely
    Pain sporadically bursts in and out, almost forgotten except for the scars
    Emotion shrieking inside your memories
    Better left unrecollected

    ^ wow. honestly..just like, wow. i understand this. "better left unrecollected" it hurts less if you don't think about it...

    Mute the blur of time spent
    Calm the raging pistons inside your mind
    Follow deeper into time
    Drown in the silence

    ^ drowning in the silence is something i do far too often..

    Court the demons well versed in torture
    Lead the way to better feeding grounds
    Of despair and broken trusts
    Fragmented memories of forgotten wishes
    Roaming the silence of time

    ^ "fragmented memories of forgotten wishes" definitely my favorite line in the entire poem...definitely

    Asphyxiate in the quietude of eons
    As time moves peacefully forward
    Eradicating times once held so dear
    Lulling into deep sleep
    Forever in serene appearances

    ^ once again...constant reference to time and quiet....wonderful..

    superb job, danielle...5/5
