Read Poem: Naked Honesty, by Vasundhra Dahiya

To understand the unsaid, one needs to listen.
Listen to the silence.
Silence that says nothing yet explains everything.
One that induces transparency, yells peace.

Silence that shuts the door to faux world,
Taking away the pain, provides to it an escape from wordly shams.
Guides the soul into a world it truly longs for.
It screams truth, what only, an honest soul will hear.

Honesty in its purest form, that listens to nothing but the unsaid.
Honesty that lays down for you, the speech of silence,
uncovering the truth that hides in plain sight.

As an honest soul befriends silence, it estranges itself of all.
For which it longed for so long,
now lies with it, holding it for all eternity.
