Silence

You spend so much time in silence
That it scares you
Like the dark–

You try to fill it with words and song
Clicks and tics,
Anything
That will drown it out
Like running through the house
Turning on all the lights

But it seems that for every switch you throw
You create another shadow
Running from yourself
Growing weary from the chase

Because you
Cannot hide
The dark knows all the best places
And you will soon find
That it will have power over you
Till you properly face it

Quite like your fear
Of silence
