Secret Garden

Silent Dreams

Email To A Friend

Silent dreams
like a door unlocked
yet when i push the handle
it doesn’t turn…

Silent dreams
like a beautiful garden
that the door has been hidden
from me

Silent aspirations
like a sunny day
but i am locked

Silent desires
like a table full of food
but i am too nauseous
to eat

Silent emotions
like a dam on a river
ready to break

Silent conclusions
like a puzzle undone
due one little
missing piece

Silent worries
like a rope round my hand
tied in the back
out of reach

Silent agony
like a knife in my back
that is covered
with a coat
so noone can see

It’s tough
it’s rough
it’s searing
it’s enough
but this is life

Silent musings
like the sun breaking thru the clouds
like the rain disappearing
as if it was never there

Silent strength
like a soothing massage
that relieves me from aching
and stress

Silent self talk
like a pill I just swallowed
that knocks down the fever
and pain

Silent joy and smiles
like a room filled with sun rays
like a light bulb that has just
been lit

So when you see me
just notice
that inside
lies so much
silently taking place

When you notice me
just know
there is more to it
like a book that is ready
to be read
like a zipper that is ready
to be unzipped.

But it doesn’t matter
what you see
what anyone sees

For I am at peace
I can emerge
I can reach into me
I can find the strength to go on
