    Silence makes cowards out of all of us.

    Crave that buzz like heroine, racing through our veins Racing horses, slick coats and ragged breaths We don't want to hear our own ragged breaths Stimulated by a thousand drums The silence speaks a thousand words but We shudder and cover our ears Too wired Too daunted To...

    silence is way better

    than listening to an endless ,pointless story, a crying baby or someone playing a kazoo.

    I am friendly but silent person I annoy my own

    company and being on my own. I like to watch crime documentaries overall I jus enjoy my own company. I don't know if it's because I have trust issues but I feel safer when I am on my own and do not need or have to rely on people for nothing.

    Coz it gives me a chance to ponder; a chance to

    be enveloped in my own wandering thoughts and make them focus; a chance to feel the moment; and the one chance to accept reality.

    There Is No Me In Realtiy, There Is No You

    The thought of a ME that exists. Is only a thought that is happening RIGHT NOW. there is actually no ME in reality. Its like this, the thought of a unicorn appears, does that make the unicorn itself exist in reality no the only thing that exists in reality is the THOUGHT of a...

    Among my taciturnity,

    I find solace within the conflagration in self-reflection. For other extroverted introverts like me, you know exactly what I mean when I use the reference towards hearing certain songs that reflect everything we have come to know and love, like Mudvayne's "All That You Are" song...

    I find myself needing silence more

    and more... But sometimes, listening to Frank Sinatra's My Way and Young At Heart can be just as soothing

    At times I enjoy being quiet

    and just not focusing on the bad stuff that's going on and aim more towards the good things that are going on, I like to go sometimes and sit in my closet with some nice chill ambient music and tune out this world for a min and mediate on what I wanna do next in my life it all...

    Weird

    I love silence when I'm alone, but it's pretty awkward around other people. Once you find someone that you can enjoy silence with and also enjoy a conversation, you've found someone special.

    I enjoy the systematic grunts

    In the midst of turmoil,

    chaos in the mind, and a heart filled with voices crying... Nothing can be as priceless a SILENCE.

    I'm not the anti-social type

    "We sit silently and watch the world around us.

    This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together...

    I listen to 130 middle school kids all day long,

    and then I've got two of my own. Sometimes I just need absolute silence. That's why I love my lunch break so much (on the days that I get one). My friend and I have this unwritten rule that we won't speak for the first fifteen minutes. It's our time to relax and just be...

    Sometimes I just want to take a few minutes to

    enjoy some silent awareness. Turning off the cacophony that's been growing in recent years, in my head is incredibly therapeutic. Being able to hear every little tick and creak and rush of air outside and nothing else is an immeasurable comfort. Just peace. Then my phone buzzes...

    never awkward for me.

    I can talk for hours, but I can also shut up for days. Silence is good, you get to feel and observe every thing. So people please minimize your noise. haha,

    Just Me And My Heartbeat.

    When I have the means to get away, my favorite thing to do when I come home from a long day of being out of the house- Is to lay on my bed and stare at the ceiling fan. Since I was a child I would love to do this. Just lay there in the silence. For hours upon hours. Deep thoughts...

    Sometimes I turn everything around me off

    and just lay in bed and rest thinking of only positive things, trying to gain a clear mind and get rid of all the clutter from that day's events.

    I have no need for friends to communicate with

    in a daily basis. I do not like talking on my phone nor do I like being in the company of people on a daily basis. I would say I am an extreme introvert I enjoy myself, my own company.

    I believe the best time to enjoy silence is

    between 3am and 5am. I used to wake up to study during those hours. No noises, no construction noises ,no vehicle noises..All one hears is the sound of the breeze and tick tocking of the clock. Your mind is at peace and is also the best time to do meditation and breathing...

    Right now, I only have the hum of my computer 5

    feet away. The fans whirl and the lights flicker. The freak of my futon as I look around sneaks in, gently. I love this silence, in this apartment, where it's a comfortableness that I can understand. No drama, no expectations. Just empty space. I love it ^____^.

    I think people talk too much,

    about pointless things that don't really have any importance. small talk is okay but sometimes it's nice just to sit in silence and just enjoy each other's presence.

    Silence -the Language Of Love

    The power of silence and the beauty of love can never be put into words. Love is a kingdom and silence is its language. Love doesn't need the pillar of words to stand strong, it dives in and out of the ocean of silence; profound and meaningful. Silence is like a melody that can...

    A Quiet Moment In My Busy Day

    Cousins were here. As much

    as I wanted the room for myself, the noise of sharing space with relatives turned out to be not as bad as I thought it would. Now that they're back to their homes, the silence of the room smells like memories.

    When no words are spoken you can hear

    so much... the beating of a heart, the intake of a breath...two people becoming one. There is no such thing as silence.

    Unless its awkward, then I don't.

    But for the most part do. It's serene, and when you lay down and close your eyes and let your mind wander, it's the best thing ever. Silence is the one moment where you can stop and fully experience life instead of just living it every day.

    When things in my house,

    or in my life period get hectic .. I just go into one of my empty rooms & close the door, shut the blinds, sit on the floor and just block it all out. Either that or I get in my car, park somewhere far away from my house and I just think. It brings me a level of peace & serenity...
