Silence is a Friend of Mine

Silence is a Friend of Mine

written by: Diana Burns


I wanted to scream and cry
Crumple up and die
I wanted to rage and roar
Bleed from every pore

I had enough anger to swallow this fucking world whole
For all it had taken; for all it still stole

But silence is a friend of mine
She disavows every line
That which you speak, is reveal
Don’t say it, don’t feel

So I’m trapped in this fucking shell
alone, alone – just me in this hell
