Silence - Poem by Joseph Rambeaut

The silence is deafening
I fear I cannot stand it any longer
but I dare not break it
for it would unleash the rath of the beast
and from that there is no escape
so alas I shall continue to sit here
within the silence of these hallowed walls
I shall sit here in my prison
until I at last find a way-
to escape the silence.
