Congratulations on a great piece of work! I'm pretty introverted myself, so silence and solitude are both companions that I cherish. You're right though that sometimes they can be oppressive. I'd be very sad without the occasional company of family and friends!

Thank you very much once again.Thanks for the extra stars
It takes courage to be a friend sometimes, but a coward can be deceitful or as you put it, two faced. Beautifully written my friend, the language is articulte and strong. It's most expressive full of emotive words and extremely descriptive. Well done, good job, blessings, Roy
A wonderful personification of 'Silence' with an appropriate visual of a part visible face to match the duplicity of her character sketch. I like the way you portray her as a welcome companion on many occasions in many settings, even ironically when there was a natural acoustic element that 'silenced' the silence: 'On lonely mountains even with the chuckling brooks'. I love the depiction of remaining silent and being alone as creating perfect harmony: 'I loved her when she reigned with her friend Solitude. Grateful for the right perspective. The wisdom and the muse'. i.e. the enhanced ability of thinking clearly and logically whilst on one's own, in sharp contrast to when silence is broken, because of the perceived need to talk and to justify one's words and actions to others: 'Then I glimpsed her other face, a face of ruin. She is sin when words should be raised'. Also the fine examples of literary contradiction: ' She is empty but looms large...A paradox. With her, hearts speak to each other. Without words. Yet she can widen the rift when words run out'. Ultimately a two-faced creature. Good luck in the contest. Best wishes.
