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

  1. Silence is scary, I never thought so, until I started noticing signs of rejection from my wife. She simply started to withdraw and be social media friendly, she would go to work, come back and never say a word. I call her, she will always have a reason not to talk, then she started to put unbearable preasure on me about my finances. Thats when I realised we were not two different people. I love my wife but it appears she has grown out of love for me.
