In Your Silent Reply

Is silence really the best answer at times? I am not so certain of this.

In Your Silent Reply
by Michael Doyle

Haunted by all the dreams
Filled with the dramatic scenes
Wondering what it is to find
All the things that play on the mind

Things that a heart would keep
No matter how many tears we weep
Is the price paid too steep
The priceless doesn't come cheap

Pointless pride leads to more
Scarred emotions bleed to war
In a force of might against might
We come to the point prepared to fight

Greed for more has led us to here
And yet somehow, you expect me to cheer
We tend to keep the special near
Perhaps to cushion us in our fear

Lost in all our decisions made
Cards that were perhaps less than well played
There are some losses that won't erase
Despite the wished for miracles we embrace

Conversations blurred into the dark
Are chipped in fine point as if in lark
Yet, we burn the pages of our mystery
Wishing for one moment to forget our history

If the written words cannot be kept in head
Maybe there's no reason to hold onto the dead
Wouldn't it be something ...with no more tears to cry?
There is a smell of fear in your silent reply
