Silent Whispers ~ A poem

Somewhere in those empty chasms of my soul I hear you,
Whisper my name like before, calling out to me.
In the darkness of the night, my heart is illuminated with your thoughts.
When I feel alienated from myself is when I sense being closest to you.
And just then the light of my being shimmers in between,
Weaving a cobweb of silence yet again around my heart!
The more I try to hold onto your reminiscences the more I am pulled apart.
There is no you, your voice or my name that can be heard any more.
A deafening silence where nothing is audible, not even my own heartbeats.
Life is often the noisiest in its silences.
