Poet 11586

Silence

The silence slithers, hiding in
The dark crevices of thought
I hear whispers in the shadows
And lie, waiting as time rots
Yᴏᴜ ᴅɪᴅɴ'ᴛ ʜᴇᴇᴅ ᴍʏ ᴄᴀʟʟ, ʏᴏᴜɴɢ ᴏɴᴇ,
As ʏᴏᴜ sʟɪᴘᴘᴇᴅ ɪɴᴛᴏ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴅʀᴇᴀᴍs
Aɴᴅ ғʟᴏᴀᴛᴇᴅ ɪɴᴛᴏ ɢᴏʟᴅᴇɴ ʙʟɪss,
Sᴏ sᴜʀʀᴇᴀʟ, ᴜɴᴛɪʟ ʏᴏᴜ sᴄʀᴇᴀᴍᴇᴅ
Ensnared, my vision is blinded
As this tortured agony
Grips my weakened, ghostly soul
Smiling in a toxic glee
Bᴇғᴏʀᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ɢʀᴀᴠᴇ ɪɴ ᴡʜɪᴄʜ ʏᴏᴜ sʟᴇᴇᴘ,
Gʜᴏᴜʟs ᴡɪʟʟ ᴡᴇᴇᴘ ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴅᴇᴍɪsᴇ,
Eɴᴄʜᴀɴᴛᴇᴅ ʙʏ ᴛʜᴇ ᴅᴇᴠɪʟ's ʟᴜʀᴇs,
Dᴇᴀᴛʜ ᴀᴡᴀɪᴛs ʜᴇ ᴡʜᴏ ᴅᴇғɪᴇs
Demons lurking within my mind
Break away life's feeble grasp
Heart anguished, I bear this burden
As time steals my final gasp
Gᴏᴏᴅʙʏᴇ, ᴍʏ ɪɴɴᴏᴄᴇɴᴛ ᴀɴɢᴇʟ,
Aɴᴅ ᴀs ʏᴏᴜ ᴡɪᴛʜᴇʀ ᴀᴡᴀʏ
I ʏᴇᴀʀɴ ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜ ᴛᴏ ᴋɴᴏᴡ I ɢʀɪᴇᴠᴇ,
Bᴜᴛ ᴍᴏᴜʀɴ ɪɴ sɪʟᴇɴᴄᴇ ᴛᴏᴅᴀʏ.
