The 60's was a decade dominated by great musicians: Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix. You've penned some good poetry. Muffled giggles are stifled and silence is once again restored.

The recommended breaking of her heart Broke stained windows, and loosed forbidden skies That hailed meteorites of ice upon tilted desks and rotting libraries, And now, she sits across from me upon the floor, Our space cleansed by rivers of tea, candlewax, music and incense, And after a few moments, her lightest touch descends upon my hands. People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share No one dare Disturb the sound of silence.

Amazingly, Paul Simon is now 75 years old. The sound of silence by Not a single word was spoken neither was any music played.
The atmosphere is a contrast, between black and blues. Instead, the people pray and worship the neon signs. Rather they are moving further and further away from true happiness because they have ignored the true goal of life. This may suggest that some of the people are walking around not looking directly at him or showing that they have no interest in the narrator at all. With nothing to hear but the sound of silence. With stillness and serenity And dry my salty tears.

Darren, you have penned a powerful and impacful write. Many people cannot stand to be alone with themselves. And every night she cries. I found this write to be thought provoking as also.
