The silence is a deafening thing
Sound echoes so hollow, the emptiness
Screams more words than we could ever
Follow with our ears or hearts.
It draws everything into it,
Pulling, calling, and taking
Shuting all away, never letting on
That it knows everything.
The silence takes away your
Breath, it renders you helpless
To feign pleasantness, to be
Fake like you were before.
The silence makes you tell the
Truth as you never told before
Silence forces you to be the real you
It takes away all pretense,lying no more.
