Sometimes not talking says it all...
Sometimes we must stand up for ourselfs...

Unspoken Words


Sometimes in life
Words aren't needed
You just know
Unspoken words

You can look at your  spouse
Turn your head a certain way
Make a jester with your hand
A smile only they would know

Sometimes you argue
Hurting from inside
Unspoken words
Both knowing your wrong

Sometimes you see others
Hurting from abuse
A smile normally there
Today only a frown

Unspoken words
Afraid of what might happen
Not wanting to hurt their feelings
So you just walk on by

A child crouched in a corner
Tears run down their face
Bruises covering their body
No need to ask what happened

You just know somethings wrong

Unspoken words~

Yes, you are right, Michael. There is great power in the silence and the exchange of knowing looks between intimates. So much is said in our body language that never reaches our lips. Well done.
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 11/3/2007
I'm very late reviewing this poem, "Unspoken Words", but I just wanted to say what a meaningful poem it is. There is great enlightenment available through observations of body language, and your poem captures the essence of it. Great write.

Hope to see more of your work soon.

I have heard these unspoken words for so long and yet you have put them in words. They hurt and they love yet all the while they are just there giving us fear and hope and pain. You have truely captured what many have felt.

This is a very real write. The last part really gets to me it's very true and sad. things like that happen all the time and when I see it it makes me angry. What is wrong with the mothers of them kids? If anyone ever touched my child they would die.
You provoke many feelings with this write.
Great job.

Unspoken words sometimes hurt much more than the spoken ones.
But when it come to the unspoken words from a child it hurts even more.
This poem says it all.
Well done.

Oh Michael, this is so sadly true. So much is said with unspoken words, even more than with words, sometimes. You've captured it so well. A powerful write full of wisdom.
