Cannot Make a Sound

by x.Athame.x   Feb 5, 2007

All is deadly silent
As I lay here tonight
My eyes glinting
In the pale moonlight

Tears are welling up
As I think of you
I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do

My emotions so thick
I feel like I am dying
All of this time, to you
I have been lying

Not saying how I feel
Not saying what I know
My emotions I hid
Never let them show

Now I cry myself to sleep
For there is nothing more
For me to do now
And it cuts me to the core

I should have told you
What was on my mind
But it seemed; the courage
I never could find

I found it now, and told you
So now, I'm afraid, you know
But I have no clue
As to where this'll go

I can't believe I told you
Now my baricades are down
And while I feel like screaming
I cannot make a sound.

    Ooooo, the end was almost spooky. And the beginning dragged me in, to be honest. It was flowy, and a good rhyme. As for inbetween, well described and beautiful.
