The Trance of Silence

The trance of silence slowly brings me back
To quiet places where I walk alone
From red to white to grey and then to black
At times I pace the halls I call my own
Confused how silence steers my heart to doubt
When all I seek is solace in a breeze
And once I am within, I am without
A thought that brings me quickly to my knees
Then to my hands and I begin to crawl
Ashamed what silence easily has done
Abandoning my heart, my hope, my all
Surrendering to silence, which has won
And now the only sound to quell my fears
Is shattering of falling crystal tears
