Silence Poem by Claire Abbott


The sound of silence is all around,
its eating me up,
the black hole is coming down to swallow me.

Its suffocating me,
that silence is all around,
oh God, what would I give just to hear a little sound.

The noise of silence is here again,
its pushing me down,
the empty hollowness is driving me insane.

Break this silence up,
come and rescue me,
take me out of this silent misery.

Give me any sound,
anything at all,
please don't leave me here,
this silence is so cruel.
