I need silence now
In silence I can breathe
In silence my inner eye blinks
And awakes

I need solitude
Wrapped within my brittle skin
I can dream
And then begin
In solitude

I crave gentleness
A softest touch, a brief desire
Then all is lost
Within the fire
Of pure gentleness

I need silence now
But one word disturbs the veil
And a melody will linger
Like a secret, not belonging
In silence
