Daily Prompt: Silence

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.


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!

    Freedom, at times, warrants a very steep price.
    I hope you can now look back at this circumstance with ease in your heart Smitha.
    This maybe old and your “first” but it’s great for a ‘first” because it showed how genuine you are as a writer. Your works has a beating heart in them!
    I’m glad to have known your blog. Thank you for liking my works first!

      Yes it does. I had written the poem in a diary some 20 years ago when I had more than 1 battle that I was fighting. Older, wiser and thankfully the fight was worth it, I am at ease. Thanks for asking Andrei and thank you for the compliment. It’s truly encouraging. I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog through a comment I think you had written on a blog I was following. Thanks for the follow. The pleasure is mine😊

      Hello Ben,
      Thank you and Yes☺. It’s been a year since I started writing so got a pop-up reminder on fb of the poem. The poem didn’t seem so bad to get just 1 like 😀. Will check your post too.
