I shall write for the silence,

For the resounding buzz,

That flows through my hair

And in one ear and out the other.

 

I shall write for the day I once forgot,

When I promised myself I wouldn't forget,

And cried too little tears

And swore to remember.

 

I shall write for the time I tried and failed,

When I knew I could have tried harder,

When I was sure I was at the top

But fell, somehow, to the bottom.

 

I shall write for the time everyone else lost,

That they don't know they're missing,

Becuase their hands are cold and lifeless

And their hearts have forgotten how to beat.

 

And I shall write for you,

Even if you never read this,

Becuase myself is a lonely place to be

And perhaps when you read this you'll feel like you're with me.
