Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 131 #SynonymsOnly Beginning & Consume

Colleen’s back finally with her first Synonym challenge in nearly 2 months! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Beginning & Consume

Sad, Depressed, Depression, Sadness

At
The start
Of the year
All I wanted
Was peace and quiet
They listened and left me
At first, I revelled in it
Then the loneliness slowly came
The silence ate away at my mind
I begged them to come back, but no one came

    That type of silence can be deafening, haunting.

    Well formed poem, Sis! “The silence ate away at my mind”! Fantastic! Silence is golden, but too much of it is not good. 😉 Michael
