Silence

Silence is a song waiting to be sung

the playful melodies dancing in my head

every thought and every bounce

cause a quiver upon my mouth

 

The words themselves almost slipped

but the rise and fall of every breath

will not happen upon my chest

for what’s unspoken is my truth

 

If my songs and thoughts fade away

at least I know they’re safe inside of me

no one slanders my pretty songs

that’s all I wanted, all along

 

Now I sing my songs  to you

the world starts spinning all around

all of the words just escaped

Silence was broken and my mind left blank
