Obfuscate - Poem by Arik Fletcher

The sound of silence in my ears,
A lonely crowd to hide my fears,
A bitter-sweet song in my throat,
A symphony of just one note.

The darkness bright within my mind,
An open secret none can find,
An endless dream cut short by sleep,
An ancient story none can keep.

The death that lives inside of me,
A chain that sets my spirit free,
A distant place so close at hand,
A paradise deep in the sand.
