This is another one of the dark poems that was written in Buchtel. I spent a lot of time locked in that back bedroom so all I had was my writing and my art. This poem directly deals with being
locked in for so many hours. After while though, the cage of that back bedroom became almost a welcome place to be as opposed to having to deal him.

BUCHTEL HAUNTING ME

THE POETRY OF BUCHTEL

EXTREME EDIT 13 OCTOBER 2017

 

SILENCE IS DEADLY

Without a single word

In a blink of an eye

With silent violence

He walks his lie

He holds me prisoner

And demands even my very life

"Live, Live, Live"

"Live to Serve"

All I hear is, "Live to Die."

 

Silence is deadly

It stomps down the hall

In the middle of the night

It points a finger at my heart

And demands me to,

"Get it! And Get it Right!"

With two different faces

He tells me he loves me

With two different faces

One of tenderness

And one of contemptuous hate

Love becomes heaven

Love becomes hell

But any kind of compassion

Comes a little too little, too late

 

Silence is deadly

It serves with a frozen smile

Finally it unravels and falls apart

It runs away in the dark of the night

With empty pockets and a trembling heart

Without a word

Without a voice

I loved him dear

Under the cloak of silence, came fear

So many awful names

So many blind threats

So many swallowed tears

Too many locks

Not enough keys

A warden's lie, a prisoner's cell

It's all the same pain, the same hell

 

Silence is deadly

It echos through my memory

A long forgotten piece of me

Remembers what used to be

All that was lost

All that it cost

But in the end 

That same silence became my friend

It set me free

And threw away every closed door and

Every key.
