Guess, like me, the world is watching the video over and over again.
And I made a discovery. He makes silence speak and sing as powerfully as sound.
Like the sunset
Dying with the rising of the moon
Then the pause, the long pause during which MJ seems to physically usher in Silence, slowly and gently with his delicate hand - - - A Silence that is trying, as it were, to reach out towards eternity - - Silence charged with choking pain - - -
And then, he concludes with the final
Gone Too soon.
He bows slowly, elegantly, resignedly with infinite sadness unable to conceal itself behind the pale smile, and acknowledges the thunderous applause.
Now those clichés “Silence Speaks” or the ‘Sound of Silence” cease to be clichés for me.
Michael Jackson now speaks louder than before, more passionately than ever through his silence!
