(September 2nd,1966 / Groningen, The Netherlands)

Painful Silence

Our love is not what it used to be
The hurt and pain is all we see
It is a shame to let it all end
But there is no way for us to pretend

All our arguments have ended
All we hear is painful silence
No more sounds of breaking hearts
All that's left is painful silence

No matter what I try to do
There's just no getting through to you
And all the while you feel alone
Because my heart is walled with stone

Our feelings are all history
All we've got is painful silence
We don't hear our cries for help 'cause
They are drowned in painful silence

The end is closer than the start
The emptiness within my heart
And your heart must be filled once more
A new world lies outside our door

There is no way that we can stay
And survive this painful silence
Outside our home we'll take the road
Away from our painful silence

All our arguments have ended
All we hear is painful silence
No more sounds of breaking hearts
All that's left is painful silence

thats a beautiful poem hun
Walter, I have to agree with you on this one too. It is definately worse when only silence is left. I liked your use of repetition. Thanks Gypsy
