This Silence Beats Too Strong

Enclosed in silence, not yet spoken
storms of rage and terror building
sorrow unimaginable, songs
still waiting to be sung by you
needing to move out and on
before the break of day

This silence beats too strong
to be denied.

How is it that you left your love behind?
Still your heart cries out for your return
but now no soft, sweet arms are there
to comfort and support you.
Those too, you chose to leave
that day, when in your anger
you turned and walked away from her.

This silence beats too strong
to be denied.

You strove, in vain then
but so long and hard
(Is it weeks or years or centuries
since you held her lovingly?)
Still you struggle, every moment
clinging to sweet memories
that empty of their innocence
as time goes on.

This silence beats too strong
to be denied.

So strong, so weak
the beat of heart goes on
waxing in its waning
always entertaining
more and more, the love of thee

This silence beats too strong
to be denied...
