Breaking the Silence

Words are tied in knots of silence!
I wished to say a lot of things
things that are caged
in the small corner of my heart
holding zillion expressions
under the soft coverlet of silence
SILENCE which is only visible...

The pulsating world beckons,
Rise, let this silence speak for you and me
let the unsaid lava flow freely through it
that unsaid lying beneath layered chastity
let this volcanic sin erupt in silent flames
envision! the flying ash touch the sky
settling down comfortably on rocks and sand
for ages to donate the barren with fertility
sprouting tender shoots and poppy buds
of equality and justice
let this silence speak for you and me!

Dear bhavna, this is amazing! Listening in silence your words but full of emotions inside!
