The Sound of Silence

That sound wouldn’t let me sleep.
I heard it again and again. There was no one around.
No one moving. No one talking. No one laughing.
And to think about it made me shiver.

I could hear rumbling drums and a marching band.
I could hear cars passing by.
I could hear a baby cry.
But it was all down deep in my mind.

I heard it again, slowly creeping through my ears as I shivered.
There was no one around.
No one moving. No one talking. No one laughing.
But this sound was not in my mind.

I couldn’t hear rumbling drums and a marching band.
I couldn’t hear cars passing by.
I couldn’t hear a baby cry.
All I could hear was the sound of silence.
