The only time to be afraid

The only time to be afraid
Of silence will be in the grave
Not standing by or digging one
When birds sing and bright is sun

Or in a solitary cell
With slam of door and ring of bell
Or dead of night when nightmares call
And tongue swells like cold brick wall

Or out at sea where no bird flies
When waves quieten and wind dies
The only time to be afraid
Of silence is in Hades

Where heartbeat ends and dream fades
For there’s neither one within the grave

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
