When all has gone Quiet.


No excitement
Nor anger
No love
Nor boredom

Emotionally quiet
Uneasy silence

Maybe this is freedom
A place of choice
How do I feel?

  1. You have inadvertently described how I have been feeling as of late in this piece. I especially loved the following:

    “Emotionally quiet
    Uneasy silence.”

    Well articulated & powerful post!


    • More serendipitous then by your description. I would love to hear your take on this feeling then, if you can find the time to listen within and see what comes forth. For me, I am still struggling with this quiet, and wondering, if it’s not the quiet that unsettles me – what then? Look out for some more from me, hopefully. Thanks for your feedback and sharing, much appreciated.


      • I deeply apologize for taking so long to reply to your comment. I hope you will forgive me!

        Numbness has not been my friend these past three years, and your beautiful words seemed to have described the uncomfortable feeling that has resided within my heart for far too long. I believe it comes as a protective response to outside events that cause feelings of anxiety, severe depression, betrayal, etc. In quieting my heart into seeming indifference, my mind believes that it is defending me from undue pain.

        It IS an unsettling feeling and I can completely connect with you on that level. For me, it is unsettling because it feels quite unnatural to feel indifferent towards events and even those around me. However, I do not believe we are alone in this feeling and it is not permanent. It will take its leave at some point or another–we need only to wait. 🙂

        I hope this suffices. Thanks again for the post

  2. I’m one of those who has taken many years to learn not to always fill the gap. My mouth has caught up with that psychology, but my head has not. I can’t recall the last time I wasn’t thinking loudly! x


    • Life passes through so many different
      rooms, passageways, and spaces
      it’s only afterwards we realise
      the familiarity of some places
      While traversed younger
      the impact was different
      Now with our experience
      we appreciate lessons learnt
