You can’t hear me
Neither can I
It’s the hum of my conscience
That’s keeping us alive

I heave a sigh
Of relief and pain
While the noise of my thoughts
Is making me insane

A newfound instinct
To tread life’s path
Where I follow the thuds
Of a deafened heart

We are no strangers
We speak to the souls
That peek through our eyes
Into a heaven unknown

I no longer stand
To make you hear
Instead, I listen to
The silence beat fear.
