Her silence is deafening,

it's where she keeps her screams

The darkness is all consuming,

but it is where she beams

The sun is drowning out her light

It's under the stars where she can catch her breath

they're shining against her skin so bright

The midnight sky isn't stealing her air

The world is quiet

Under the moon

All alone,

Her silence sings a different tune
