if, silence

if silence had a face
would you recognise her?

if silence had a scent 
how would you describe it?

if silence could hear
what secrets would you speak?

if silence had words
if silence had a tone
if silence could be unsilent
….for a while
i now know how it would sound

This poem was inspired by the above video. I just had a feeling that if silence had a sound, it would be like this beautiful song.

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this nice post.

    I like Depeche Mode. The words of your poem, alongside this song, take me into silence.

    All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
