I never liked silence.
It's why I leave on my TV while I sleep
Or blast music when I'm home alone.
I'll even sing a tune myself,
If it keeps out the silence.

So why is it so surprising, then,
That I've grown so overly frustrated
With your unresponsive critical hit?

I can only do so much myself---
I've reached out,
Cranked up the volume,
I've shouted and sang and cried and screamed!


But you let the silence creep in,
And now there's just... n o t h i n g.

I hate your silence.
Because sometimes people can be complete assholes and just stop talking to you entirely, out of the blue, and no matter what you try and do, they reject your existence and pretend like you aren't there.

Meh, it didn't come out as well as it sounded in my head... ;_; it had more of an impact when I was thinking about the idea. But oh well.

I couldn't stay silent any more.

It's been about a year now since I had to break off my last relationship via Facebook message because the guy refused to talk to me. Just stopped texting me, and wouldn't return my calls, and I caught him playing games on Facebook one time and he told me he'd just been sick and then logged off. I don't have the time, patience, or emotional capacity to put up with that kind of crap so I was forced to send him a Facebook message letting him know that we were over. He never replied. Ever.

I was already over him, but it just... hurt that I wasn't worth enough for him to even respond to, you know?




"Preview image doesn't belong to me, but silence feels like a monster to me so I thought it was more than fitting."

^^ See? Never claimed it as my own. So please stop telling me I stole it, I just had no idea where it originally came from. But now I do, so I can give proper credit!

 Silence is also like chains upon oneself, if no one helps to remove it, it will soon becomes too strong to break or worse it binds thy voice so you can no longer speak, imprisoned by the silence ever more~ Your poem is awsome and speaks truth, something many try to chain in itself

"Fools!" said I. "You do not know, silence like a cancer grows. Hear my words that I might teach you, take my arms that I might reach you." But my words, like silent raindrops, fell... And echoed in the wells of silence...

Dear Author, my heart goes out for you. I can relate.....

Relate in the sense that I was the guy who got dumped by the girl. She never really ever cared. I broke up the realtionship, and now she'll never talk to me? How does that even make sense?

Excuse me, which one of us got their heart ripped out? Not you? Oh, wait? Me? No.......... -_-

I've done all of that. You can only hold out so long.....

Aww, thanks so much! x)

And I'm sorry that happened, relationships can just be so rocky sometimes xP but if she never really cared, then in the end it's for the best that it ended I suppose. I just wish the endings were a bit less suckish >.>
