Only the lonely can hear sounds of silence
Screaming like wind carried with violence
Breaking through walls and filling your soul
With emptiness, loneliness, and a heart shaped hole.
No one would suspect that silence has a sound
But its terrible and great and like a cancer spreads around.
Like ten thousand trumpets only you can hear
Screaming through your soul having not once passed through an ear.
Its loneliness, crying from within its cage.
Its confined words longing to be released unto a page.
Its screaming on the inside while you smile to the world.
Its being silent when you want so badly to be heard.
Its putting all the silence into poorly written rhymes
Hoping soon after you let it out a dream you'll come to find.
Silence is the screams of those that know nobody hears
That know the pain and loneliness will just fall on deaf ears.
Listen to their silence, its louder than you know!
Maybe if you listened more they wouldn't just let go.
