Whispers of silence

Get me off this cocoon
Slow Swirling lagoon
Dazing already faded reality
Struggling back to sobriety
Break this restlessness
Undo my loneliness
Unchain my neck
Lest, I slip deep
Deep into depression
And she calls it, it
Frustration

Why mock the monk
Meek monk in me
Week after week
With out end
My head unbend
I, race with no pace
Hoping to escape
Freedom of marriage
But no, I will manage
This fairy carriage
Undesirable heart ache

I, whisper in silence
Silence of my insomnia
And the uncaring world
Thinks, itís a mania
