This is an entry for MAmberConrad's Whoop ista a song challange I used the Song The sounds of silence. I hope you enjoy my take on one of my most fav songs of all time.

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

I have to say...The Sound of Silence was my favorite of the Simon & Garfunkel musical poems. I also have to say...I may like the writing in yours as much. You rocked out with this poem. ...And Ian...Keep on Rockin' in the free world with your writing skills. The word is less without you!
