Hello darkness, my old friend
In twisted linen wound
My sweated girth
I’ve come to talk with you again,
In screams and wails without sound
Gossamer baggage weighting me to the earth
Because a vision softly creeping,
While the sun was upward bound
Turning this soul to flameless hearth
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
Taking from my flesh its pound
For all it’s worth
And the vision that was planted in my brain
The tick- tock of my own ‘gator run aground
Mocking me in a Cheshire mirth
In the ever-growing mound
Of compassion’s dearth
Within the sound of silence
To seethe and confound
The truth never given birth
Abhra is hosting at the Poetics bar here at dVerse Poets Pub today, challenging us to talk about secrets without actually revealing any.
Using the ever familiar lyrics of Simon & Garfunkle’s “Sound of Silence” in a modified combination of Glosa and Trireme Sonnet forms.
the sound of silence is such a good song…
i like cheshire mirth as well…
i have to wonder if it is no more stressful and wearing to try to keep the truth underground…
the sound of silence creates an air of mystery: it leaves truth hidden, but gives a bit away so it’s known that there’s more than meets the eye… nice.
Sound of silence is like the unheard whisper of a secret song.. yes that’s a good secret.
Love “the tick- tock of my own ‘gator run aground”.
It reminds me of the secret depression of times gone past.. that no longer seem like they could have ever existed until they come again.. and the light of the past becomes the fate of non-existing secrets as well.. and the cycle goes on i guess.. in lives and lifetimes in life as is..for now…:)
your words speak and sing.
