The most secluded place is within yourself
When you pull yourself within no one can reach you
No one can hear you or know what it is you are going through
Since you know they may not always understand

Maria Yousuf
Sometimes you see the silent abyss
Hugging you, embracing you
And all you can do is give in

Maria Yousuf
You think silence will mend what is broken?
It will only wound all the more
And permanently engrave the scars

Maria Yousuf
Like a Sand Storm
Pricking my sight when its roaring
Uneasy & pinching
Silent remains when its over
Innocent, like nothing happened

The Darkness will always be a refuge
For my tears
For my secrets

Maria Yousuf
I don't want silence to kiss my lips
Don't want to become a mute
I don't want void to echo my speech
Don't want words to transmute

I can smell the winter coming
Feel the pleasures of heat
Hear the chilly mornings
See the whispers discrete
