THIS SILENT NOISE

Alone in a world

Where everything's bare.

Alone in a place

With everyone there.

Screaming sound

With trembling voice.

No one hears

This silent noise.

Sitting in a corner,

A room with white walls

That shout dark things

About people who fall.

Alone in a world;

Unfeeling, unkind.

Not looking for anything

But perhaps I'll find

A steady voice

Of screams so still.

A hush and a whisper

And maybe I will.

Alone in a place

Of everything awry.

White angel of dark face

Has learned how to fly.

Screaming so quiet,

Wind with echoing voice.

No one hears

This silent noise.
