Silence at Dusk

I am mute
I can not sign
I can not speak
I am mime
I am trapped
In an invisible box
Trying to say too much

I’d never hurt you
My heart versus my pride
My reputation versus my life
My body versus my mind
You can not hear me
My mouth won’t lie
My feelings changing
And my heart tied

Can’t you see this?
You won’t knew me well
You don’t want to hear me
So silence fell
