I would often find comfort in silence
The absence of voices with nothing good to say
Brings the presence of peace of mind.
Finally alone after a tiring day
Your muscles and mind can now relax.
Escaping into the silence, the emptiness
Where you’re no longer surrounded by people
Who don’t want to be surrounding you.
But sometimes silence creates a noise of its own
An inner buzzing that causes your body to tremble.
Because your desire for silence
Has made it a permanent state.
Running away and no one wanted to chase after you
Sure, what did you ever have to offer?
Finally alone after a tiring day of being alone
And you forget why you once found it appealing.
