Silence is Golden (Or is It?)
In the quietude I wait,
Close my eyes and paint
All the beauty that I see
Onto the canvas of my memory
There is a sense of freedom here
To leave the world behind, yet to also keep it near
Please- just ten minutes
Of uninterrupted peace
If for this time I must do penance
So be it
But in this moment here and now
'Tis only silence that I seek
And only for silence that I vow
Oh to be left alone
In total utterly delicious solitude
All my very own
Before this woman simply comes unglued
Stop the useless cacophony
Please - I'm begging you!
Before I start charging alimony
Instead of silence that could have been your dues
Silence is golden, they say
Yet the silence here could rattle the wall
As it remembers yesterday
Through the eyes of frames there in the hall
