Breaking the Silence

'…for you, words are just paper boats in the rising tide. I fret with starry lines, incomplete rimes, and feel cut and dried. Through fevered afternoons with nothing but syllables of silence to bring solace, pieces of you in my secret interstellar space, I have counted the minutes to madness.

Waking unto you in the winter rise, G minor across my tin, I wonder if I should cross my eyes, or should I disappear under your skin..."

I have felt this too so very very often!!! Then I read someplace that the only things that come close to explaining the world are - silence and music... And I felt a little cheered... Because that is what I want... to explain the world... that doesnt really want to know :( ... This was brilliantly put!!!!!
