Silence came with the night and by morning stole my heart
The stage was set, for I had heard the whispers of silence
They said silence was a menace, a force so gentle
Only the brave could face the power within
Silence was not for me, I rather fancied my life of noise
What care I for silence, when noise has me in thrall
Oh I will guard my heart and my thoughts, may silence be still

But the hook had sunk, the bait too tantalizing not to bite
Silence courted me delicately, a whisper here, a touch there
Intimidated I was and afraid to discover my insides
So tied up in knots I was for my night of reckoning was nigh
My senses stripped, bereft of any feeling, I gave in to silence
The journey of discovery, far from noise, the distractions of life
My day with silence had come, but was I ready for the intimacy

Silence caressed my ears as I closed my eyes to the soft voice
A gentle brush, whispers of sweet nothings in my ear, a tease
I smile shyly, then full bloom at the warm breath silence blows
A heady feeling, it travels my senses, the warmth it creates
I can’t bear it, I lean in, I have no choice, and I must succumb
Surrender was inevitable in the arms of silence, sweet melody
The climax begins, the melody leads me, the crescendo, release!

Silence, sweet silence, now tasted, never going back to noise
The awakening came fast, flashbulbs erupting in my head
I saw me, me outside, the me inside, I was so real
The ugly, the beautiful, the bad, the good
Silence showed me, silence loved me to the truth
I can never go back to the noise, silence now in me
I am silenced tender, I am rendered voiceless
