When the wounded heart aches and pain becomes too much to bear, the soul resorts to silence. You try to conceal the suffering and despair, but your silence says it all. The unspoken emotions speak louder than the words as the silence lays bare every ounce of pain that one is carrying within.   

In this silence, a shayar finds an opportunity to recount the misery and you find your agony turned into a piece of art. Giving words to silent suffering opens the doors to a healing process and who knows it better than a wizard of words?    

Here are 12 shayaris that profoundly describe the pain of silence.
