Silence, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

SilenceSilence, John Atkinson Grimshaw (n.d)

Silence

The shielded moon struggles to pass
As is my deep love reaching out
To you who stay behind the fence
Not letting me beyond the gate

Searching for ways to pick the lock
To get inside your wanting heart
For there is something in your eyes
That is not part of your disguise

There is calmness in our caress
Yet heavy pounding in your chest
It’s I who’s first to pull away
But sensing you wish to linger

Dare you say directly to me
‘You shall not love me anymore’
A request I’ll surely ignore
Will love even in your silence
