“Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.”
Haruki Murakami (Kafka on the shore)
Silence, a solemn soliloquy
Lies supine like silk spun in gold
It croons at the weeping moon
A soft string of secrets
That makes my heart crack
With putrid pain
Even the silhouettes of songs of silence
Leave the listener's soul fraught with violence
If its words fail to be shared
With another heart that cared
@tamanna3 Thank you for the amazing recommendation. I really enjoyed Kafka on the shore, and now, Murakami is one of my favourite authors!
In literature, 'setting' is a term that stands for time and place together (or when and where) and is usually used at the beginning of a story.
The setting helps in understanding the mood of the plot and the actions of the characters.
--Today, write a creative prose or poetry starting with a short description of the surrounding in which it is set.--
The surrounding includes both the physical and cultural surrounding.
I am just another unrecognized face in a crowd of muted silhouettes giving away my jiggered dreams and fading strength to every ounce of insanity behind these weeping walls doused in dark secrets of strangers who are trapped in an inextricable path of self-destruction. I wonder whether the four corners mock the story of a young, blue-eyed, brilliant minded boy who collapsed his hopes on the brink of unexpected failures after moving to Chicago, creating a glorious chasm for skyrocketing scores.
The quivering pulses flicker the hymn of intoxication that I drown in everyday to touch the ceaseless waves of misery when the sun glides down the horizon and night becomes a stealer of my woes, when theft no longer seems an offence and stardust plasters my clavicle with elegance.
Just another random write. Its sensual with slight eroticism.
This night encircles us as you twinkle only for us these black egyptian sheets become your skies so you're the only star that's in my constellation while I burn from the touch of your presence your essence mixes with my passions tonight you'll be my star while I dwell in your galaxy
Twinkle and shine your brightest let me cover you with my eclipse of love for all to see while you dwell beyond space and time alongside of me let the skies of these sheets cover us as we tour through the heavens like a comet no one will utter dismay at our show for we dwell beyond the reaches of the well known
Sensual pleasures sparkle yet they fail to compare to the fire of you the desire quells my staring for tonight the moon compared to you is lacking so shine your brightest for me as I sing your name tickling poetry's ear by letting it be known your shine is for only me while I gift you with love without fear
