My love for you is like a metal rose, it will never die.


The dark surrounds me
I cannot push it back
the silence suffocates me
Yet I cannot break it
I have no power over it
I am blind to all
I am afraid of the light
After so long in the dark
The silence I cannot stand
Is now all I can stand
I am mute
No word escapes my sealed lips
My soul crys out for me, for help
I cannot hear it
I can no longer feel it, see it
The dark is my light
The silence my song

The author's comments:
this piece was, not surprisingly, inspired by one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands; In the Dark by Flyleaf. My favorite quote of the song: "I used to be afraid of cluttered noises, but now I'm afraid of silence"
