Silence


Like a siren song that pierces my brain
Draws me in and pushes me away
Drains my strength and fills my passion
Lives and unlives my existence
Cuts me on the throat then holds the blood inside
Turns me inside out
Crumples me up and throws me away
Burns me on the pyre
Spreads my ashes on the ice
Leaves me aching in the cold night
with only Silence

 

Orpheus
