A Silence of Everything

"For millions of years,

"For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals.

"For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination.

"For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen."

A weak hope wanders within

A weak hope wanders within As my cries air like a whisper

A weak hope wanders within As my cries air like a whisper In a cacophony of noise.

At the end of my tether,

At the end of my tether, I scream from the core of my gut,

At the end of my tether, I scream from the core of my gut, But my lamentations are muffled

At the end of my tether, I scream from the core of my gut, But my lamentations are muffled by the hearsays of my past,

At the end of my tether, I scream from the core of my gut, But my lamentations are muffled by the hearsays of my past, and the tragedy of my future.

“Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible.”

But I sit in my corner,

But I sit in my corner, besieged by the silence

But I sit in my corner, besieged by the silence of my heart’s broken rhythm,

But I sit in my corner, besieged by the silence of my heart’s broken rhythm, and a voiceless psalm

But I sit in my corner, besieged by the silence of my heart’s broken rhythm, and a voiceless psalm that airs its resentment

But I sit in my corner, besieged by the silence of my heart’s broken rhythm, and a voiceless psalm that airs its resentment to those I’ve loved.

Who I now detest,

Who I now detest, for they are the source of all my pain,

Who I now detest, for they are the source of all my pain, the kindlers of all my ire.

Anger curls hot in my gut,

Anger curls hot in my gut, Like a blazing inferno

Anger curls hot in my gut, Like a blazing inferno that chars me from within

Anger curls hot in my gut, Like a blazing inferno that chars me from within and burns me out

“Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking.”

But my words won’t come out right

So they’d never hear what I say

Never read what I wrote

Hence,

Hence, I drowned myself in the deep

Renounced the breath in my heart

As I faded to black

But she was a candle in the darkness,

But she was a candle in the darkness, that scoured my gloom,

But she was a candle in the darkness, that scoured my gloom, and brought light to my soul

But she was a candle in the darkness, that scoured my gloom, and brought light to my soul by just speaking to me.

“All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.”

AFTERWORD: Thank you for talking and listening to me ❤️
