Simon and Garfunkel

Silence can be the loudest conversation starter

Cloaked in inner thoughts

Dripping with unsaid truths

Why this long, loud silent screaming at me?

I much prefer words perforating the outline of my heart

But the echo of the silence is deafening

Enveloping my soul

Squeezing the life out of me

Please stop yelling nothing into the void

I cannot cannot cannot

Handle the sound of silence
