Cape Of Silence

They pelt stones at me, I am silent
Calling me names, I am silent
Push me down, run over my ego
Punch my confidence, bruise my dreams

But I wear a cape of silence

They take me for granted but grant me nothing
I brave all insults, it sinks deep in me
I am silent but my mind is racing
Brewing thousand thoughts in a minute

But I wear a cape of silence

Strangled I feel, devoid of breath
Is that where this will lead me?
I am silent as I pull the trigger today
A deafening sound fills the room and some blood…

Then I lay there forever, wearing my cape of silence!

  3. If wish to be silent please be silent, For ask not of you to speak , Tell all will I keep , this dislike becoming To far no need for such talk on you not even I The who should don’t wish this for your I find your silence mysterious hot and lovely , But words you shall never take,
