Silence My Music

Why, I still don't know
The sun on me never shone
Belittling eyes at me stare
Cursing tongue emitting fire

I live and breathe alone
Sadness my only companion
I despise to see the light
Darkness, the only retreat

I befriend only shadows
With me, I keep them close
Silence is music to my ears
Always makes me shed tears

If to mankind I'm a disgrace
I will long for a place
Which is beyond the sky's face
Even if it means my grave
