• voices are surrounding me
    too many people, deafening
    i try to listen in my head
    silence proving almost dead

    blocking out what i hear
    people far moving near
    gossip and lies
    complaints and whines

    secrets wriggling like snakes
    causing so many bad mistakes
    crawling through their sickly veins
    splitting open with the rains

    can the quiet happen soon
    password like an ancient rune
    find the way for which you've fought
    and no more sound beside your thoughts
