Silence

Walking down an empty street, screaming,
Waking up and hearing nothing, dreaming,
Waiting for a sight or sound, searching,
As agony weighs you down, hurting.

Looking for another being, someone,
But finding nothing, not a trace, no one,
Silence almost deafening, crying,
There's only one way out of this, dying.

Nightmares come and grab your thoughts, stealing,
Everything is out of sorts, feeling,
Sorrow washes over you, forgiving,
You know the fight must carry on- you're living.
