11 (who?)
A resounding silence takes up the space
rebounding off unfilled walls
gliding through empty halls
nothing more than empty memories

Your incessant talking interrupts my thoughts
wearing down on my paper thin tolerance

Trying to stuff the void I left open
the quiet I hung there ripped down
torn up by your noisy complaints

My vocal cords are rubbed raw
by words waiting to be said
stuck in my throat
they can't be pushed down
but can't be forced out, just yet

Allow me to go back to my unforgiving  memories
silent betrayers of my tired mind
unkept tendrils of forgotten knowledge
brimming over the sides if my head
pouring onto ungrateful lips

Can we keep it quiet
even just for a little while
