The knell of silence


There are times in life

When happiness is a world away

And all I hear

Is silence

 

There are times in life

When their happiness is a world away

All I want to hear

Is their voices

 

Because I try

Because I care

Because I understand

The silence

 

I don’t want the same

Silence for them

It torments and

It breaks you

 

Suicide’s a dirty word

Or so they say

But no one realises

It’s the preceding silence

 

Promises are meant

To be broken

Expressions of love today

Become nothingness tomorrow

 

There are times in silence

When life should be a world away

And happiness is

To end it all
