There are two kinds of people in the world -- those who walk into a room and say, 'There you are' and those who say, 'Here I am'.


I silently sing
My empty song
My wordless lullaby.

I hum a long
To the distant beat
That old meaningless rhyme.

I listen to
The abandoned tune
My vacant testify.

I yell for air
I shout for sound
But the hollow melody plays on inside.

Silently screaming! So loud but no one can hear you. I think I know what it feels like
