never did the sound of silence
make me so afraid
until the day
all the noise went away
it stole the light and my breath
and left me broken into
jagged pieces that wouldn’t reconnect
as my strength faded
and my life force flowed from me
and my vision grew blurry
but i would swear i heard you
screaming that you loved me
