SILENCE

The silence is deafening Where the secret lives It mocks and scorns Taunts and poisons Weaves the lie The fault is hers Here is where The menace moves Salivates to confuse Here in dark And shadows deep Perversion awakes The innocent weep The moon is full Alighting bright Illuminates The room at night But still [...]

GOLDEN (A Tribute)
