Silence

A gloomy day an an unworthy end,
You ask me for my wallet and my hand.
I give you the lights that hide beneath my eyes,
Where I see the world beyond.
I can tell you are up with a smile,
It's own your face, it's in your words.

You jump of a parachute,
And you land in the swamps.
I can beside you,
Every moment passes on.
Silence.
Eternity.
Drowned.
You are fine.
Move on.

I ask for a penny and you hand it to me,
You call it the starriest night in history.
But I'm dumbfounded,
And I wait.
And I ask you what it means.
You say it's a verse that you wrote,
Seventy years ago,
In another birth.
But you're gone,
And you're numb.
You can no longer feel.
Time has begun.

Because you are a part of the world,
And you can't run away.
There are angels watching out,
And there are people coming you way.
Smile.
Heavens awaiting,
Life.
No one is waiting.
You are silent.
You are drowned.
You are still alive.

You are lying in an operation theater,
Your painkiller is running out, you back aches.
You are hungry and you are depressed.
The future awaits.
Can you live?
Be my friend,
And I shall tell you the truth,
Breathe.
You shall be okay.

Silence.
Eternity.
Love and grief,
Mistakes and revenge.
Are you alive?
Silence.
It isn't over yet.
I told you to be my friend,
And I dreamed through the night.
But you're no longer fine.

  1. I don’t understand the monotony. Sorry. Also, I feel that you’re not finishing sentences. The first stanza is awesome actually. Kind of a shame that you don’t follow up.

  2. You didn’t disappoint anybody, obviously. And no one should have the power to upset you, or matter enough to direct you tbh. Choose the ones you distribute the ability to share your mind with, because your feelings will always flow until they hit rocks. Persevere.
