DVF: JOURNEY OF A DRESS

Silence

Between every word ever said

A thousand more, heard but not uttered

 

In the silence lies the truth

That which is often concealed

The one that only the quiet can reveal

 

A motion, a glance, a smile

Rarely hides what words deny

Through the cracks of every phrase

Run the meanings that no one says

 

With facts always known

And acts protected, never shown

While relying heavily on senses

Rather than explanations that might create messes

 

An understanding that cannot be described

Awaits in peacefulness, where noise does not reside

Words unsaid are the most powerful of all

The silence holds stories told and never told
