Comfortable Silence (21st January 2006)

Poem By Sarah Capella Smith

The freezing wind rips raw through my skin.
The sand supports my heavy form
And I couldn’t wait to take the plunge.

My mind and body are at ease -
Because there’s nobody demanding an answer,
There’s no-one to answer back.

As comfortable as sleep.
The sea breaks like pages of poetry
And I drown peacefully between the sheets.

Shorter than most of your others but straight to the point! I really liked this, good job. :)
silence which is unbearable many times is converted into comfortable silence....... the last stanza is striking especially.
