Muted, But Heard Everywhere

A silence of shame, on being confronted by the truth

Guilt measured in a muted breath

Murmurs give away a disarrayed narrative

So many words have been stolen and placed erroneously

To structure definitions conveniently

Allaying failures with lies- diagnosing some fatal maladies

Of which there are no remedies, but more woes

In silence, there is complicity too

Most of what life could have gathered are spent in sighs

Exhausting the positive energies

Depriving a soul and surrounding a life with barbed wires

Fencing off the light, remedies, and hope

Silence and its feeble breath scarcely echo anywhere

~Amitav
