Through it, all you remained silent.
Not a call
Not a note
Not a whisper
When the silence began, I knew it wouldn’t last long. But, I believed in my soul that we would connect and start the friendship I hungered for. I remember for a while, I would sit in my soft, oversized chair and place a blanket around me and have the sun hit on me from my big bay window and imagine us talking about life—all the good, bad, and ugly. I would vent to you and wait for your advice that I needed.
After a few months of your silence, my ears started to burn. Sometimes they felt like a flame was lit within, and I could feel my ears swelling.
They would begin to itch, and the more I rubbed them to relieve the pain, the worse they became. You would think my ears would stop burning after a few years of silence. The pain has let up a bit, but if I’m being honest, they’re taking longer to heal than I thought they would.
It’s funny that silence can hurt your ears. But I guess your ears aren’t any different than your heart.
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored.

Thank you Kerry! Silence is hard.
🤗 Sending you a chatty hug!
Hugging you back! 🤍
Currently I am experiencing this with a friend, at least I hope she’s still a friend. I know she has an excuse, but she cut us all off when she got sick and it really hurts. We actually want to help, at least with kind words, but apparently she neither needs or wants them 😢
Awwww I’m so sorry Paula! I pray that you keep trying to show her you she can lean on you and the rest of her loved ones.
I know this has to hard.
Thank you 💗
STOP and how dare you say that to Paula! Remove yourself from my blog!
You don’t have enough information to assume who doesn’t deserve who! RIDICULOUS!!!
Great! 👋🏽 see ya and don’t come back. No one said it was a question or comment.
Great unfollow and get to going
Good!! Go be rude somewhere else
I don’t need you commenting to anyone on my blog! Save it for your own.
odd how that works. My parents…they’ll talk and share with my younger sister, not me…..
Oh Warren I haven’t spoken to my mom and dad in years!!!!!!! So I get it. We just have to be better than them.
We’ll talk to ya over her. We gotcha!
STOP!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO OTHERS ON MY BLOG! Warren does not have to explain anything to anyone. I have told you once not to do that now I’m going to block you!!
Hauntingly beautiful and familiar 💜
Thank you. That’s what I was going for, well after I came to terms with my own feelings. LOL
Do you find that writing it down and even sharing creates a different and deep sort of healing that nothing else quite manages to do? I certainly find that to be true!
Oh for sure!!! It helps me grow and let it go
WOW girlfriend, I truly understand. Silence can definitely speak volumes! Beautifully orchestrated my dear! 👏🏼💖🥰🦋🌞
Thank you Kym! It sure does speak louder than anything else!
OMG! I can feels the pain…
I’m so glad you were able to feel what I wrote. Thank you!
Always a pleasure, dear.
This right here, just moved something in me that I cannot explain.
“It’s funny that silence can hurt your ears. But I guess your ears aren’t any different than your heart.”
Thank you Tre! This is a realization that made me really think about making proper changes towards healing.
You’re most welcome.
In silent the heart suffers, as the silence amplifies the pain! A well said thought provoking piece!
Thank you so much Warren. It’s amazing how expressing your emotions can relieve so much hurt!
When silence is unexpected, it can hurt.
For sure Sadje!
Your light shines. All the Very Best to you in the New Year!
Thank you for saying that! Wishing you a wonderful New Year!
your welcome #QUEEN
Sometimes silence hurts so much more than words. It can be deafening.
You are so right!
I think we’ve all had similar experiences. Silence can be so sad. I hope you manage to reconnect with this person.
Thank you Molly but there has been too many yers of damage done. So I have to express how I feel and let it go. It’s all for the better
I’ve experienced the death of a friendship to silence. It hurts. More than I can ever explain. Trying to figure out my part has been difficult and ultimately it still remains a mystery. You did such an incredible job of describing the confusion, pain, and grief. Hugs, C
Cheryl I’m so sorry. I know that feeling is hard to deal with and it’s difficult to not feel guilty.
I’m so honored you liked it.
That’s exactly it!
Thank you so much!
The heart is a bigger and better interactive element than the ears
Are you being literal?
By heart, we both mean, senses of the soul and spirit right?
Not at all!
That doesn’t make sense to me
Our body has senses for hearing, taste… also our souls has its own senses
One of the great things about any form of art is we get to interpret anyway we desire. Take your interpretation and own it or not.
Have a great Sunday
