Dirty little secrets

12 Comments

Muted secrets,

poignantly apparent,

bereft of understanding.

Walls painted in silence,

ceiling fans churning the absence of dialogue.

Silence is not always golden.

The reticence can stain.

Neglect is a dirty color.

But silence breaks,

and whispers become a symphony of sound.

  1. wow – what a diverse collection of words that fit together so well. “A symphony of sound” – not noise – but well fit together. I like it!

  2. This is so beautifully written. I’m in awe of your craft. My favorite line has got to be “Neglect is a dirty color.” Utterly impressed!

  3. “Walls painted in silence,
    ceiling fans churning the absence of dialogue.”

    What an image! This was marvellous.
