Sometimes it makes a relationship,
sometimes it breaks a relationship,
sometimes leads to confusion,
sometimes leads to self realization,
acts as answer for few questions,
signifies danger sometimes,
silence the most powerful weapon of all times.

Editing stage: 


Being a rough draft, I am sure you would be looking at options to tweak this up. Try and limit use "sometimes" and I think it will then read better. I will come back and see if I an give some tips on going about it.

Try to build in real time examples into it, e.g. how a spider works silently and something similar to stress the importance of silence,

You have posted this one at a time when I am working on "Open Up" which is quite the opposite

I agree with you Raj,

I'm not sure if the repetition was deliberate, but I feel the poem could do without it.

Also, in some way, I feel the poem states too plainly what it is about. This definitely is not wrong, but I often struggle with how much you should tell plainly, and how much should be said in a more "poetic" voice.

Yes, you are right Williams about keeping some of it in a poetic voice. I am sure Kavita will attempt to do that and lend it that voice too...
