The Silent Reaches

Silence reaches inside of me
Searching through the emptiness
Looking for a heart full of soul.
Probing the ashes for a prophecy
But the fire is dead, the ashes cold.

Silence hunting for the ghost of kindness
In the darkness between the thieves.
Seeking for a sliver of honesty
To light its way like a gibbous moon.
But the truth has deserted me.

The truth has stolen my heart away.
She is a wicked mistress
To rob me of the dawn.
When all I wanted was shelter,
Some shelter from the storms.

  1. These lines especially stood out for me:

    Searching through the emptiness
    Probing the ashes for a prophecy
    But the fire is dead, the ashes cold.

    Silence hunting for the ghost of kindness
    Seeking for a sliver of honesty
    But the truth has deserted me.
