Silenced Ears


Silenced ears amid screeching noise
The desire not to hear
But no fulfillment to be found
If a choice could be had
This would not be the answer
And the consciousness knows no relief
Relief from noise
Release from sound
All silence departed from this place
This place of screeching noise
Send me quiet
Send me peace
Send me these things or else I may break
My silent heart longs for the silence of stars
The muted echoes of the moon
The stillness of the spaces in between
But these things are not near
They are out of my reach
For my arms are shortened
Shortened by the screaming
The shouting
The screeching noise
And my silenced ears have no respite

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
