The Sound of Silence

There is a time at night

When the world has gone quiet

Not a single sound is made

And you are overwhelmed by it


The world is at rest

Yet, the mind is awake

With nobody there to talk to

What is there to do, until dawn breaks?


You may find yourself in this situation

Time and time again

A mind, yearning for someone to talk to

A heart, in desperate need of a friend


This need for interaction

It is toxic, and no good for the soul

For with it comes a sadness

Which can take a heavy toll


Sitting in the darkness.

Simply letting your thoughts roam.

With nothing to hear but the sound of silence.

This, is when you’ll feel most alone.
