Will I Ever Convince You That You're Not a Half, But a Whole?

By: Hanna Haitham

hiding away from the thoughts in your mind until they turn to dust.

keeping memories silenced because they remind you of how life was.

feeling hollowed out and empty because you don’t know anything else.

tell me how long have you walked this road by yourself?

you’ve been hiding in the corners of your mind for some time.

been locked in there until you can’t find the will to say goodbye.

can I wrap you up in hope and pull you right out?

can we find a way to give the silence you live in a sound?

you enjoy watching the cityscapes as they light up,

they provide you a reprieve from the darkness you suffer,

and you go over to the piano you used to play a hundred times,

but when you touch the keys the sound of silence brings tears to your eyes.

can I wrap you up in hope and pull you right out?

can we find a way to give the silence you live in a sound?

will you walk through the halls you once did – a changed soul?

will i ever convince you that you are not a half but a whole?

can I wrap you up in hope and pull you right out?

can we find a way to give the silence you live in a sound?
