Silence

My lips once unsettled,
Forming words and emitting sounds,
Now quite quiet.

For some, I have faded
With fading talks.
While some longs,
To hear me ramble.

Now that I’ve distanced myself,
From everything and everyone,
I am walking back to my real self.
Now that I’ve embraced the silence,
I am hearing myself more.

  4. Indeed, Mr Positive. We find ourselves when we spend some time with our own selves. But I know you won’t forget your friends and well wishers. Go embrace your real self, but come back to us after that. 😼 This was really Beautifully written. 💙

  8. Wonderful post. I especially like the last two line, “Now that I’ve embraced the silence,
    I am hearing myself more.” Even though, we do not always like what we hear. Thanks
