Sound of silence



ce
Silence has its own sound
The sound of silence is very strange
It can be like a mothers embrace
But the next moment you never know
Its strangling your neck
Causing you to collapse as your knees give up
Its like a peaceful calm sea
Slowly drowning you into nothing
Making you to gasp for air
Due to inner turmoil
Its intimidating presence calms you
Suppressing the anguish
Into bare numbness
