Treasure Island

Smile Henry


Silence


Silence, my life is lived in silence.
the only voice I hear is usually my own.
my alone soul, wrestling in the dark pit of thirst.
Panting, crying out in hope of a better and brighter day.

Sun shines but there is no light.
The day is as the night.
The silent thumping of my heart beat reminds me.
that I am alone again.

Spring, winter, summer and fall has come and gone.
the same, the same, nothing different, all the same.
Me, just me, myself and I.
Where is everyone? Where have all the people gone?

The music plays but there are no lyrics.
The streetlights are on but there are no people.
The rain comes down but it is not wet.
The sky is clear but thee is no moon or stars.

When will this silence end?
How can I be set free from this isolation?
Who will rescue me from this pit of loneliness?
Silence, my life is lived in silence.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
