by request The Silence is Deafening

Silence is Deafening

Around us everyday,
Are the sounds that are made.

Through all the noises that can I hear,
My mind races all alone I fear.

Dreaming of a time that I could listen,
To share with someone that I've been missing.

How can I be, so alone in this crowd,
Sounds of laughter and conversation so loud.

Oblivious to it all my soul is so alone,
This tortures me and I want to say so long.

I live with so many sounds to hear,
But my heart won't let me bring anyone near.

A tender voice I struggle to be,
To find someone to take this silence from me.

How can one person be so full of loneliness,
In this world that so many can find sweet bliss.

Is it in me or is it in my mind,
The answer to my question, I must find.

All the chatter of things surround me everyday,
But inside the silence is driving me away.

I am blinded by my dreams,
the reason is my shy thoughts it seems.

It's not the people who is to blame,
But my mind that makes me feel this shame.

I must open my heart and show them kindness,
This could make me happy and releave my blindness.

It's not anger or depression that makes me whole,
but the friends we make and the truths we told.

Give them something to make them smile,
This will make the silence go away for awhile.

Give to those what you expect to be,
And friends will be there when you're in need.

By request this is something I threw together awhile back on a napkin. It was front and back too :D Thank you for your responses and support, It allows me strength to continue writing my snippets for you.
