Golden Silence

Our conversations
Out of hand lately
Using terms incorrectly
Hinting subliminal messages
Maybe even confusing
The aware and the subconscious

The misguidance in words
The sorry meaning behind sorries
The love in hate
And hate in love
Our tongues that twist
At the entrance of hearing

I speak, you speak
We yell and tell
All the lies to shut the other off
I act, you react
Nothing but a chain reaction

We speak and hear at once
But we cannot do both
Without misunderstanding
It is humanly impossible

Despite all
Communication was our best asset
And now
Also our worst

In two
We have fought
But also taught
And in two
We have solved a mystery

The secret to talking
Is listening

I’d love to be a Villain

shalshal just suggest that I created my own villain character with my own villainous power. 

shalshal: wuneekins, why don’t you just created your own villain character, with your own power? That will be interesting.

wuneekins: *light bulb moment* That’ll be interesting! Hmmm…what power should I have?

shalshal: Hmmm..I’m thinking maybe you can have power where everything you touch turn into gold?

wuneekins: Oh, like Midas touch!

shalshal: Yup. And it might be a pun, but remember wuneekins, don’t touch yourself. Else you turn to gold.

wuneekins: *silence + cricket moment*

shalshal: *laugh* It’s quite rare where I can make you speechless!

wuneekins: *hyena laugh* Dayum! shalshal, that’s a good one. Totally caught me off guard. I never know you have it in you! 

Okay, so shalshal, here is my vow of celibacy. I, wuneekins, hereby take a vow  not to touch myself. Else I turn to gold.

And now I think I know what my super villain power is. People will turn into troll (the cute funny troll like myself, not the offensive one. Hey, we troll have a lot of species too you know. No discrimination!) once I infect them with my trolling super power. shalshal is the prime example.

Nothing will be safe. Be ready, world. The wunee-troll is coming.

The gold hidden in silence

We have all heard the term silence is golden normally meaning that sometimes the lack of words can do more good than bad in situations but today I witness the beauty of silence amongst two people.

These two old men were sitting outside of a butcher side by side no words being exchanged.
The only words that would leave their mouths was if passerby’s would sit next to them and conversate but once they left it was silent.

I sat and examined their body language for a while. Normally when people don’t talk they either have an awkward facial expression as if they feel uncomfortable, others may have been in an altercation so anger is painted across them.
Yet these two men looked at peace.
They were just being.
They seemed comfortable in each other’s presence to the point that it was natural not to seem them talk to one another.
In that moment I hoped that one day I get to share such golden silences with those in my life.
It’s these moments of stillness that you enjoy the presence of someone way more than having to actually talk.

Its in these moments that when you go your separate ways you don’t feel like you wasted your time doing anything but instead were HAPPY and CONTENT to have been with them.

The calmness that comes over two people sharing a moment together in just one another’s presence is beautiful.
In those moments your soul is at peace. You don’t wish to be anywhere else, you don’t care to be. You would chose where you are anytime any day.

You have found the gold in silence.
