    dotsHello darkness, my old friend,dots

    Hello darkness, my old friend,
    Ive come to talk with you again,
    Because a vision softly creeping,
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone,
    neath the halo of a street lamp,
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of
    A neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence.

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more.
    People talking without speaking,
    People hearing without listening,
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence.
    Fools said i, you do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows.
    Hear my words that I might teach you,
    Take my arms that I might reach you.
    But my words like silent raindrops fell,
    And echoed
    In the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the NEON God they made.
    And the sign flashed out its warning,
    In the words that it was forming.
    And the signs said, the words of the prophets
    And whispered in the sounds of silence.

      I liked this very much. It is my belief that angels inspire us in our dreams. This writing kinda attests that. God hates technology and views it as a kind of idol worship. I don't know why that is. It doesn't make sense to me. Anyway that's the vibe I get from this poem... Good writing!

      Profound... the idea of having seeds of a vision is perfect... i also loved the pulsating rhythm of this poem. The various forms of light : halo of a street lamp, stabbing flash of neonlight splitting the night, naked light, NEON god, signs flashing,.. all seem to be engaged in a losing battle with darkness. Marvellous.
