Loudest silence

I don’t want to wake up and see that

The monsters left their shadows

On my heart.

I am fighting to wipe the dark off my path, but

Blood is paving the walls of my mind;

Every day is filled with night.

And I am suffering more than you are;

I drown in my fears –

In the halves that are left of me.

In my dreams I remember; forgetting

who left these tattoos on my thoughts.

And I try and I try and I try but

I still feel the miracle of your kisses.

Silent moments moved on with the rivers and the sands

As the sun rises behind the clouds

I am not freezing in July –

Not anymore. I didn’t realise it but, the

Faded light returned to me.

Covered in hope, ready for the next song.
