Hello darkness my old friend.

I’ve come to talk with you again.

Because a vision softly creeping

left its seeds when I was sleeping

and the vision that was planted, in my brain

still remains with

in the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone,

narrow streets of cobblestone.

‘Neath the halo of a street lamp,

I turned my collar to the cold and damp.

When my eyes were stabbled by the flash of the

neon light

that split the night

and touch the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people may be more. People talking without speaking.

People hearing without listening. People writing songs that voices. Never share and no one

dare, disturb the sound of silence.


Fools said I you do not know; Silence like a cancer grows; Hear my words that I might teach

you; Take my arms that I might reach you; But my words like silent raindrops felt and echoed in

the wells of silence.


And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made, and the sign flashed out its

warning. In the words that it was forming and the sign said the words of the prophets are

written on the subway walls and tenement halls whispered the sounds of silence.

Be the first to like.
