silence

ache cannot exist without dread
love cannot flow without joy
when the mist of the afternoon rain blows
across a lonely heart
silence deafens

dreams cannot play without hope
tears cannot fall without passion
when the crackling fire of desire burns
beside our naked skin
silence comforts

hunger cannot be sated by water
thirst cannot be quenched by thought
when my mind is left to devices
alone in solemn muse
silence welcomes

    “hunger cannot be sated by water
    thirst cannot be quenched by thought” so ingenious and beautifully said.
    Thank you dear poet.
