The Sounds of Silence – By Indunil Madhusankha



I hear the erratic sounds of silence
The arcanely echoing sounds of silence
Through the esoteric whispers of silence
Over the bizarre chants of silence
The intimidating heartbeat incited by acute silence
The scary sounds of spooky mind pictures
Crazed by the piercing silence
The whimsical pleas of silence
I hear all these mute noises
Every now and then
As I dive deeper into the tunnel of silence
