Fallen Quiet

Fallen Quiet

The world has fallen quiet
And suddenly I'm sad
Perhaps without the noise
I'm truly left alone 

I have nothing 
But my thoughts for company
And they are poor guests
Keeping me up late at night

When all I want to do is sleep
But everything in my head is so loud
And I can't press the mute button
Or even ask them to leave

So I stop listening close my eyes
Try to become nothing
My breathing heart beating
Until I too am fallen quiet
