via Daily Prompt: Silence

Away from the maddening crowd,

Far from the traffic so loud,

Away from demanding relations,

Far from binding expectations,


Standing at the shore,

I had wanted nothing more,

Gazing ahead at the horizon,

I had the battle won,


The air was still,

I had broken all ties at will,

Peace though, still at a distance,

Engulfing me was a deafening  silence,


Love, Friendship, Family I had lost

Freedom-my whole life had cost!

  1. Reblogged this on SILVER LININGS… and commented:

    The first poem I wrote on WordPress. 1 blogger liked it and I was thankful to him. I probably have come a long way since this first poem but it holds a special place in my heart…like all ‘firsts’ do. I hope you enjoy reading it.
