Speak to me in roars and booms like thunder,
To inspire wild visions in wonder.

Or whisper like the softest breeze in spring
Of a scholar who overthrew the king.

Debate in Fauvist colours, shamelessly bright
And dare to make sunshine in the dead of night.

Shout and scream, hoarse as the Bedlam inmate
Of the dagger-sharp edges of cruel fate.

Lie to me in dreams like a trickster god,
Tell me I can spark like a lightning rod.

Sing to me more skillfully than an opera star,
Like an angel but holier by far.

Laugh like Balder before the arrow struck;
Confident, easy and just out of luck.
             
                But don't stay silent.
I wasn't sure whether or not to separate the couplets, but I thought it might make the theme of talking clearer...

Silence is golden, that is what am told.  Sometimes you wonder though, is it really, or is it what we are told to preceive.  To know me, is to know that do not believe that.   Though cannot hear my own voice, everyday surround self with the sounds of other.   Silence is not golden,  The musical sound of one's voice in their own ears is golden.   The sound of others is that of a bell, it rings gloriously for all to hear.  Silence is deafening.

Very poetically put. Aristotle said that our ability and desire to communicate is what makes us human. I think it's a wonderful description.

The only way that can communicate now is through paper or sign.  And that is a pain in the A**  but thank you for the compliment by saying a wonderful description.

Amazing work. I haven't seen a fully rhyming poem in a long time and really enjoyed reading it. Your poem is well thought out, smart and extremely well written. Good job!!!!
