Break The Silence; Attack Of Nervousness


Break the silence...how can I break the silence
Break the silence...how can I break my infinite silence
good question but what if I don't want to break it
I'm so used to it; I'm so fond of this silence I keep
it's part of who I am, what I stand for
the motive behind my quiet, arrow eyes
this comfortable, omniscient smile resting arrogantly upon my lips
Although I'm content, understanding of my state of mute
even I myself, ponder the reasons for this shyness, this silence
why am I like this
I know why
to mask all the secrets I've buried under the body armor I contain
But I find myself wanting to reveal them all, all out at this moment
to this enigma of the perfect definition of 'stranger'
I'm stealing quick but noticeable glances
which is robbing me of my concentration
Then she silently sighs, and I'm motionless, speechless
so why do I feel so alive, feel like I can fly
I'm staring into her orbs of hazel but gaze upon her ruby red lips
soft, sweet, silently calling my name or is it my imagination
Now my curiosity is peaked to the extreme
Break the silence...should I break the silence
I want to, I want to but I have an attack of nervousness
just for one quick second
one small amount of time
enough to at least say
...Hi
