Words do matter.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter~ martin luther king
Words heal..
Words reassure..
Words express...

#20 Deafening silence

Time has taken away the silent whimpers
Nagging presence of constant whispers

Deafening silence growling since forever
Fear and laughter existing together

Of shrieking sighs and suppressed cries
Silence is all in those mourning eyes

Silence is all, which floats to and fro
Mystifying reality of merciless truths

Expression out loud is a forgotten history
Fake smiles clutching unsolved mystery

Thousand words stuck in throat, helpless
Denying to betray their beastly mistress

Silence is artful,
If conceived it rhymes
If brushed off its nothing,
If penetrated can kill
Silence is pure
Silence is bliss

Speech of incoherent
Sanity of the fool
Bravery of the coward
Silence is nothing
Silence is all

Silence is all being heard
Silence is all being felt
Wish there was a place where
Silence could be attained, understood and said...

OMG! Deepika, one of your best works... I mean,
"Silence is artful,
If conceived it rhymes
If brushed off its nothing,
If penetrated can kill
Silence is pure
Silence is bliss"

You have draped Silence in the best dress,I have ever seen it wear...:) So articulate!! Beautiful!! KUDOS!! :)


Wow..nice comeback !

At times solitude and silence is all that is required..hope there was a place where you could be and no one disturbed you!

Nice poem...

Take Care.


beautifully silent in its own charismatic way.


Beautiful piece of work by you....
"There are times when silence has the loudest voice"....


Solitude is often prejudice to darkness and sadness. My solitude is always high and maddening. :P
Anyways a wonderful write up Deepika.


so many awesome expressions there Deepika...
some very mature ideas voiced...
if this is the result of silence...it kinda suits you:-)


Hey Deepika,

very nice and deep poem.

At times silence speaks louder than words but your are right if brushed off it is nothing. However, silence is a powerfull tool of communication and it can give many messages. Power of silence can be mightier than power of spoken words.


Silence does indeed have many voices.
Very well done!


Hi Deeps,

You are back! :)

And what amazing words Deeps! The silence which we all have inside evenif it gets supressed under the noise of the constant chaos of our day to day life. Rarely the silence conveys its real meaning to the world. Why does a baby stops crying immediately when she cuddles up to her mom? It's her mother's silent heartbeats she hears close to her ears which soothes her. Silence is a bliss.

Amazing piece of writing Deeps. I loved the closing lines..
"Silence is all being heard. Silence is all being felt. Wish there was a place where Silence could be attained, understood and said..."

That place lies in your heart.



Hey, Hi

so finally after a long time, you are back!! i see the break has matured your words. Nice.

Silence, all that could be said about it is penned here...

Silence is an armour,
and at times the sword,
silence is what divides,
beauty from words...

beautifully expressed, and i can say, the wait has been worthwhile.

The Silhouette...


Beautiful poem <3


'silence is artful, if conceived it rhymes'. beautiful lines!
this one was a profound work..even i cherish those silent moments a lo, after all in a busy life like ours..its very difficult to have them :)
good wrk!



silence is loud, silence is strong, silence is hope n yes it is artful...:).....lovely post...:)


Superb way to express silent ! Loved it.


Very beautifully written!!


Silence is golden + your soothing words are mindblowing. Deepika you rally have terrific talent.


the power of silence~! nice thoughts


The only place where silence is understood without saying a word has to be in arms of the loved. It could be any form of love though.

Blasphemous Aesthete


great expressions....

at times silence speaks more than words....silence can bring in great thoughts....aisey bhi har waqt kuch bolna jaruri nahi hota....

nice effort as the topic as well as presentation is superb... keep it up....


Silence is all in those mourning eyes. now this was eloquent. so was the rest of the work. :)

strange, one moment i read the name of the blog to be words do matter and the next i am reading a poem on silence. and a pretty damn good one.

btw u r right. words do matter. as of now more than god.

keeep writing.


The best was :
"Silence is artful,If conceived it rhymesIf brushed off its nothing,If penetrated can killSilence is pureSilence is bliss"
a note here, not only when it is conceived that it rhymes, but also when interpreted by ther right for the right :)


Very lovely poem, silence is very powerful , yet too much of it can make you go mad! I think the real silence, which would be attained understood and felt would be when we close our eyes for the last time. Great words!


thats an awesome poem ..



y so sad again..?? beautiful composition though...!!!



"Silence is artful,
If conceived it rhymes
If brushed off its nothing,
If penetrated can kill
Silence is pure
Silence is bliss"

I loved the review of your poetry...at Jingle's.. and decided to visit..and felt nice to see someone young having such depth..

I will like you to visit



I look forward to meeting you on my page...


Sometimes the spoken words have no power to express, but the silence has.

I have always loved silence.

Silence is all, and we always wait for the one who can understand it, more over I can say feel it too.

Your words said it all! Beautiful Deepika :)


Whoa Whoa Whoa!!

Well, Deepika its not a secret that you are amazing at poems. But i loved this one.

When i say i loved it, means i loved it more than any of your work. Conflicting real emotions about silence pouring through and through. Forces me to think...and thats a huge accomplishment. B-)

Keep it up!! *pats your back*



I have always believed that the value of silence is attributed to the loudness around.

Silence is salient,
to the ears that have fared
the fort of volume,
no to the one's that gave in to
the sleuth of whispers.


I enjoyed the contradictions within the write but silence itself is indeed contradictory :)

Here is my potluck: http://lynnaima.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/where-i-belong/


And sometimes silence has the loudest voice. Beautiful play of words.


I always enjoyed reading your poem.
Great poem dear.


there are times when silence is simply INvaluable :)

Nice poem. Do visit my blog and leave your footprints by posting comments



Silence can say and leave so many things unsaid...i crave for silence amidst the crowd....
