The Suffocating Silence, Communication or Else! |2021

Communication is the act of conveying meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs, symbols, and semiotic rules. The Suffocating Silence is what relationships bring.

To me, The Suffocating Silence is one aspect of relationships. And it is what we went through as we were unable to communicate in an efficient way. But that’s how things always are.

We, as humans, lose the ability to talk, because of pride or shame, not wanting to hurt others’ feelings. This happens in all sorts of relationships, not just in love, but in friends and in work environments.

Personally, I suffer from the suffocating silence, because of anxiety. That is not an excuse, because I continue to work on this as it is a life long challenge. As it is for so many others, I do understand that.

If we work on ourselves, with respect and with love, we can overcome these things. Be open and honest with ourselves, and with those around us, we can transform into greater beings.

This is the last of the Redemption series, I promise. I started writing it prior to the declaration of putting that away, that’s all.

Check out the Youtube video for Redemption – The Suffocating Silence /a>.


 

Something’s going on here – the object is unspoken
But I can see the makings of a sinister design
The bristles of the tightening noose are scratching at my throat
And in Shadows, whispered voices plot to take from me what’s mine

The tension’s ever-mounting, and the dam’s about to break

Something’s going wrong here – the lines have all been broken
In the shelter of our silence conflicts keep upon themselves
We both have our agendas, if only we would voice them
But the guilt between us widens as we keep them to ourselves

The tension’s ever-mounting, and the dam’s about to break

In the suffocating silence
Attended by our dreams
This emptiness devours
In the darkness of desire
Where nothing’s as it seems
Our demons lie in wait
For you and me

Subconscious acts replace the spoken word
And we express with cruelty what we neglect to say

And everybody’s shouting, but no one can hear
And our desperate ringing fills my ears
And we all know that words can kill
But their absence is more lethal still

In the suffocating silence
Attended by our dreams
This emptiness devours
In the darkness of desire
Where nothing’s as it seems
Our demons lie in wait
For you and me

Something’s going on here – the object is unspoken
But I can see the makings of a sinister design
The tension’s ever mounting, the dam’s about to break
Failing to discuss it could be our last mistake

Redemption, The Suffocating Silence

ps – I started writing this because of my ex-wife, and me being a dumbass in reminding her of our wedding anniversary as if we were still married. She’d have divorced me for that all those years ago. lol.

And yes, I know that Youtube is Killing Videos – 2020
