Silence... it is in the confines of my thoughts that I take solace... and it is there, clandestine, that I dwell. Smiles become polite gestures of acknowledgement, though truly, I have no desire- beyond that meager response- for any socialization. Again, I arrive at a point where I re-evaluate my life... my direction. Time to let go of the carefree youth that turns, by the sway of the moon, as the tides of oceans do. As for these tears I've cried... salty seas of emotion that I alone must swim.
