20. In The Silence

Silent in the morning,

Heads down to hide the tears,

Never ending shout to widen our fears,

Crushed imperfection and lost pride,

Silent in the afternoon,

Blend in with the crowds,

Never let them see,

The weakness that kills you is that you still breathe,

Silent in the evening,

Writing down a note,

Shouting echoing from wall to wall,

Soft tears falling until there is none,

Silent at night,

Creaking the chair to below the light,

The shouting fades from the final night,

No sound made at the drop of a puppet,

Silent in morning no more,

A scream of a woman falling to the floor,

Swaying slightly from deaths swing,

Forever this silence shall remain.
