After The Storm

The silence never lasts...The silence, it's deafening; Almost as though the chaos never occurred;

The silence, it's deafening.
Almost as though the chaos never occurred.
As though there was never a raging storm.

The silence.
It's foreign, a new feel.
Very different from anything I've ever felt.

Perhaps this is what peace feels like.
Perhaps my soul can finally rest.
But for how long?

How long till the voices return?
How long till the fear starts seeping in again??
And I'm back to the hell trap that is my mind???

I guess I should cherish these few moments of silence.
Bask in the silence.

This silence is everything I never knew I needed!
This silence is bliss!!
