Dare You Not…

Dare you not hear the beat of your heart?

The silent thrum,

The quiet hum,

As constant as memories, and just as forgotten?

Loud as fear,

Heavy as woe,

Deafening to afflictions tearing it apart?


Dare you not feel the beat of your heart,

The timid quiver

The faint whisper

As constant as regrets, and just as forgotten?

Brittle as grief,

Fragile as despair,

Indelicately manipulated till our souls depart.


Can you hear the silence?

and Remember to forget

Can you feel the imperceptible?

but forget to Remember.


Dare you not live?

  1. Hello! I’ve been reading your posts and I’d like to let you know that you inspired me to write better blogs, I’ve been gone for two months, contemplating, I guess I’ve been feeling sad and miserable, so I haven’t been writing anything. But I’m trying. I hope you can follow my Blogs, let me know what you think. I look forward to reading more of your posts! Ciao!

  2. Sounds like something I would be thinking (but not be able to express–beautifully–like you did here)when trying to fall asleep at night. Powerful and lovely poem.

The tears of chained words

The words left unsaid, pouring out as poetry.
