Silence


Silence

Awake and alone late at night
I'm so very tired but it's sleep that I fight
Instead I'm sitting here at my window
Watching the rain hit the glass in a steady flow
The only thought on my mind is of you
I sit here and wonder if you're thinking of me too
Drawing up my knees to my chest
Upon my knees is my head rest
With my head turned sideways and staring outside
Really wishing I had someone in which to confide
These thoughts of you are becoming unbearable
All jumbled and not even understandable
I just want silence and want them to end
So that my heart can begin to mend
But yet, my mind will not stop thinking
My mind being that of a ship sinking
These thoughts flooding like water
Drowning in thoughts of you makes me rather bitter
My head turns and slowly my eyes wonder across my room
I can not seem to focus in my current state of gloom
My eyes wander over a wooden desk
The mass of papers and clutter on it is grotesque
Among the junk lies two sharpened pencils
Two charcoal pencils that I use for my meaningless doodles
A small thought begins to form
Just as lighting flashes from the storm
My body moves as if in a trance
To my desk I slowly advance
Into each hand I take a pencil
What am I doing? This won't solve my troubles
Out the window my eyes do stare
Slowly my senses become no longer aware
My mind is still thinking of you
I begin to cry because I know you're not thinking of me too
Fast as the lighting that flashes, I drive the pencils into each ear
Now I can no longer hear
My ear drums explode
My thoughts implode
As I lay bleeding on the floor
I smile because I can not think anymore
Now I have silence and that is all that I asked for
