Random Poem:

I speak silence

a forgotten language,
before dismantled words formed
or letters ever came together,
and understanding was by
the way the wind spoke to the trees,
the silence in busy streets
alone in the hearts of little children
shape emotions from nothing but the air,
I spoke before these words existed!
As the moon glows to the dark
I spoke to you with a smiles
somehow you understood me
back when we couldn't
form anything but beautiful silence.
