The Volume of Your Silence

I don't know what to think anymore
and I don't know what to say
so I stay as quiet as I can
and I busy myself with other things

yet still I am plagued
by the volume of your silence

and my heart is strangely distant now
as are you
while emotions bring no more than pain
echoing endlessly
through quiet chambers within

as the volume of your silence
seems to overwhelm
the love we knew

I wander in the silence, searching
yet I must feel my way along
down dim corridors once brightly lit
one lone candle my only companion
while the echoes confuse
every sense of the real

and my head spins
as if the words unspoken
rained down from dizzy heights
caught by the wind in a storm
that thunders now inside of me

and I wonder, how can silence
be so loudů?
