Silence staring coldly at me

peace has vanished with the sun

thoughts, now chained in captivity

the long hours have just begun

tick tock tick in hours of night

unwanted demanding companion

voices I resist and fiercely fight

defending unlawful dominion

invasive words so darkly bleak

dreams denied in shades of gray

need rest, refreshed to feel free

but sweet sleep so won't come my way

so coldly silence keeps staring at me
