Shadows of Silence

Sitting on the lush green grass
Holding hands in a tight grasp
Letting the eyes do the talking 
They sat watching the sun do down.

In their own world they stood
Feeling the thump of the heart
The hands unfurled a rhythm 
As the fingers lay on each other’s heart.

Precious smiles they both shared 
 A lifelong silence precious than words
The abandoned doors of their hearts;
 Invisible to others made way for the wordless lovers.

To the world, their life seemed dark
They laughed at the ignorance with a stark.
As in a world full of pretense
Their love flourished in those shadows of silence.
