you or the silence

you or the silence

I must choose

but regardless, you both will kill me

 

you or the silence

I must choose

but surely, you both will steal my sanity

 

you or the silence

I must choose

but either way, I’m in deep water

 

you or the silence

today the voices in my head, louder

but yet still, I am choosing not to choose

 

you or the silence

haunting, perturbing me

urging that I must choose

 

 

To Say, To Do

To say, to do

The years will still move on

Counting the days.

 

To wait, to proceed

The feet, stationary

As dreams are filched

 

To see, to unsee

The conscience knows no lie

But mouths sell tales

 

To feel, to pretend

Broken hearts can mend

But thoughts fuel a tirade

 

To say, to do

Each day, choices anew

And half truths, a framed picture askew
