Silent


The snow falls quietly, slowly
As the street light softly glows
Silence complete in the night
Only a few lights to show the night

A playground silent, empty of life
But in my heart, I know there is strife
The swing slowly rocks, back and forth
But nothing there, unlike anything ever seen before

Gently, a child begins to sing
As the swing still swings
Songs of old nursery rhymes
Quiet and dark this time

Search for Daddy, she tries
Then suddenly the child begins to cry
'You hate me Daddy! I know you did! '
Suddenly nothing, quiet again

Black ice takes the tour
Screams of terror are found
They run, they screech after me
Oh god please don't let this be

The monsters grab me
I cry in fear and pain
They rip my heart, tear my soul
I begin to feel blood run down

I die now slowly
The child sings again
That nursery rhyme
That nursery rhyme one last time...

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
