The Silence Returns

And the silence returns.
Hidden deep beneath
the muted sounds of life
that lives outside itself.
The city sleeps.
Your eyes are open wide.
You're caught within
the strength of silent tides.
Luring you into the dark.
Leading you into the park
where light hides out
in shadows growing bold.
There's no one there for you to hold.
The terror comes in spurts
that rise like demons up your spine.
Co-opted by divine insanity...
