Silent Voices


Silent Voices


Crashing clashing mashing


Rolling over heavenly obstacles

Bursting ears

Sound unleashed uncontrolled

Kettle drums beating

Noisily noisily noisily


In stillness and silence

Deaf lovers trade sentiments

Express their love for each other

Open their hearts

Wordlessly soundlessly 

Unheard by outsiders



The voice of nothingness
