silence has fallen asleep in the corner, headphones on
her thin heartbeat turned to music
she drowns the world out of her head
and slowly begins to die
'it's alright,' says the band
'we'll take it from here.'
The first chord blows her away as
they throw themselves in: the sound, like oceans
pressing their ears: blocking
what she used to soothe
so in the raw sound thoughts of her beauty
are lost
