Interesting you personified silence as a women? Haunting half face artwork.
Your poem explores the positive and negative aspects of silence, a subject I'm sure few think about. personal I find silence a great refuge from the distractions of day to day activities.

Nice job.

Hi Sanku, this is a good free verse. You have personified silence and shown us how is can be interpreted, depending on the circumstances. It is wonderful when we seek the peace it can bring, but an ugly silence can break relationships. You describe this very poetically and produce a lovely read. Reading your author notes - this is the result of such a relationship. Good luck in the contest. Warm regards Dorothy x

    True very often talking out can diffuse tension and clear the air.

A face of ruin " great performance.

I love the contrasting feelings about the two "faces" of silence. You are right about how silence can be good or bad, depending on the situation. Personally, it drives me crazy when things are too quiet or when I want to communicate my feelings to someone CV I love who won't respond. Best of luck in in the contest.

It is amazing what you have come up with and created here, entitled SILENCE

With each stanza you let us into the word and around it, questioning (I did, at least) the truism of Silent is Golden. To whom, and where, under which circumstances is it golden? Pretty fast, it turns to silver, or even bronze.

Thanks for this, and I wish you all the best in the contest.

    Thank you very much for your thoughtful response. True Silence may at times be golden often it can be coal too.

This work has reached the exceptional level
I thought this was a great poem with terrific images. Those images of the lonely mountains, the shadows, the silent city streets really capture that feeling of silence, the emptiness that goes with it. There really is a lot of loneliness in this image. That is the great dividing wall of silence that keeps the individual inside and locks the outside world out. The voice of the poem was very subdued and I think that tone really underlined the theme here. Overall, a really good depiction of silence. estory

I can really feel the emotions explored in this poem. I agree when friends betray or deceive us, relationships are broken and trust is shattered. The picture goes well with the message intended by the author. Thanks for sharing.

I never thought of silence as double faced until I read this. How true it is! It is a very thought provoking poem that I really appreciated reading. Thankyou for sharing it.

Well worded and smoothly metered poem about the fact that silence is both good and bad. It can bring on peace and tranquility of the soul or loneliness when words are kept in after arguments and forgiveness is not given when it should be.

Good luck in the contest and keep writing
