I sit alone surrounded by thousands

Greeting the darkness that is within

Remnants of a dream lingering

With silence I reflect upon my sin

Light sharp and burning trying to illuminate

The deepest recesses of my shrouded mind

I cannot see them moving aimlessly around me

The darkness beckons me to join my kind

I suffer only at the bequest of others speaking

Listening to their taunts but not hearing

Screaming at the top of my lungs but no noise escapes

I feel the darkness, welcoming but never seeing

My ears are bloody phonics against my head

A surreal dance of shadows tries to entice

But I am better off where I can do no harm

Encased in the sounds of silence
