Fondness for Silence

I have a fondness for silence 

No matter where I am, it gives me a sense of home

My mind constantly competes with the noise around me

In silence, it stops fighting 

I wander in the calmness, often with eyes closed

To the land I escape to that know one else goes

  1. A very beautiful poem. That’s the thing about silence…… It’s not always a bad thing and you’ve portrayed that in this poem. Is this something related to your personal experiences? Great writing…. Looking forward to more of your posts.


    • Thank you! Yes, it’s definitely related to personal experience. Silence has always been very calming and sort of home-like to me. I’ve never been a person to keep music playing or the tv on just for noise.
