the weight of silence

listen carefully to the sound

of your loneliness

have you any dreams you’d like to sell?

in your absence shut the door

 

like a heartbeat drives you mad

if you talk enough sense then you’ll lose your mind

in the stillness of remembering what you had

and what you lost

 

let’s take a breath, jump over the side

are you going to age with grace?

when the rain washes you clean

You’ll know

 

dark as night, let the lightning guide you

the forest that once was green

is colored black by those killing machines

are you going to leave a path to trace?


This is a found poem. All the lines are lyrics from various songs.
