Silence KillsA Poem by clairvoyantmars
What’s the point in shouting your name
When words can’t reach you, so you never came
Why do I still reach out to thin air
For a lingering touch that was truly not there
The stains on my pillow, rumpled sheets on my bed
Mem’ries play over and over inside my head
The endless ticking of the clock pushes me
Almost to the brink of insanity
The shadows engulf me, the loneliness keeps
The dreams from escaping as I fall asleep
The silence, it kills me, pulsing inside my head.
So I cover my ears and sing lullabies instead.
The moaning and wailing slices through the night
The shadows retreating to corners in fright
They hinder my dreaming and nightmares stop by
To torture my sanity until it dies.
