Waiting

Waiting, Ive been

Waiting

For the Silence

All my life,

Sitting, music fading,

Sliding

Down into the

Dark

Of day.

The swirls of deep blue

Swim into my brain,

And invade.

I fall,

Deeper

And Deeper.

I wish I never had to come up for

Air.

Air that Ive never wanted to breathe,

Forces its way

Inside my lungs and

Rushes like strong winds going

Through

A house.

Rushes its way through

My head.

Eyes open,

Locked

On me.

Tears push past

Barriers,

That I have set for a reason.

A reason that is much

Better

Forgotten.

Lights are bright,

And suddenly, that Silence

That Ive always

Craved,

Has been

Stripped

Away.

I need it

Back,

But I

Know

It will

Never

Return.
