i haven't written anything in a while
the words have dried up
the ink has already sunk in
i forgot to listen
i left my sounds deep inside of me
and i can't seem to reach them
nor do i even try
the humming stops when i lie at night
the silence awakens before the sun
and i keep thinking
pushing myself from me
who I is
or who I want to be
