No Silence

from by i.e. kokoro



how could i, crashing through the sky
find my way back to you?
i won’t try, given that i might
lose myself somewhere when you’re gone

what would i give just to be back?
break through this barely opened gate?
close it now, before i’m tempted through!
there must be a better way

“leave your home,” they tell me
“leave it soon.”
did i hope to split right through?

“leave the west,” they tell me
“why can’t you?”
did i fail to follow through?

there’s no crying here...
there’s no laughter here...
there’s no dying here...

there’s no silence!
