and what is the meaning of words?
a thousand are still cheaper than a picture,
and millions cannot explain a scene.
and i assure you, my dear,
all the books in the world
could not describe that look in your eyes.
a split second of memory,
that my mind plays on repeat.
and try as i might, i cannot interpret their intention.
but i would give anything, love,
to find out what you were thinking.
what is a word and who defines their meaning?
isn't silence better than these?
in silence, feelings are felt,
and thoughts too deep for language are pondered.
in silence, the man kisses the maid,
and in silence we weep o'er the grave.
the beauty of the mountains
and the horror of war,
can only be taken in, in silence.
