Silence, Silence, So Tranquil Silence, Never was so sweet. And yet here I sit avoiding with such a happy dread. Yet I want with a lust and hate and fear of wanting more I yearn for it like a wolf yearns for the flesh of a lamb. But I cannot give what I want the most for to obtain Silence, would mean an end to the vessel that holds us But yet I argue with my very blood that Silence will evermore be mine. Everywhere I look I see her,  in the clouds, in the dark,by the life giving cemetery, Silence. Oh, how it enrages me these feelings so mixed!  NO! I Must protect the vessel that holds,even if it means never obtaining, I am the keeper of my own destiny and I will not have Silence rule me! But still there is a painful want for her, I will never truly be me without Silence.For many others Audition for the silencing of me and yet I weep, for I know forever more Silence will never be mine. And so I will die without you Silence Never knowing the true joy you offer, Silence, Silence, such bittersweet Silence...
