Silence


The silence whispers in my ear,

It whispers at the door,

It takes away all I hold dear,

Yet still, it wants much more.

Silence takes my heart away,

It takes away my mind,

Silence takes the passing day,

And leaves nothing behind.

Silence steals all that is left,

It is part of me,

Silence is too quick to be deft,

To quiet to even see.

Nothing will take the silence away,

No more silence, I plead,

For I know that the thoughts keep the silence at bay,

But the silence will let me bleed.

The silence is the loneliness,

The reason why I cry,

But it’s also a shoulder for my stress,

The thing I use to get by.
