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
