Broken Silence

Silence- the only sound I hear
Darkness- the only sight that’s near
Myself- the only thing I fear
Nothing- what I call dear

This is me now
An empty shell
Deprived of joy
Long past being well

I beseech you
Please let me go
Away from this place
My despair filled world

I have been shattered
Far beyond repair
My mind is fractured
And my thoughts, scattered

I feel numb
Blinded by pain
My constant companion
Leading the way

But I see it now
In the distance
A shining light
A source of peace

I feel faint
I can’t breathe
Goodbye, my sweet
For now my end I meet.

The End
