Bound to You

You found me roaming perdition.
Don’t ever send me back.
Know that you complete me.
What you have, I lack.
You liberated my heart.
Are you a hero or an angel?
Alive by cause of your love.
For which I am so grateful.
Until time ends I’ll stand true.
You honor me with devotion.
Know allegiance like never gauged.
What you need, that I become.
You will want for nothing.
Would you lay down your life for me?
Die for us? I’d not blink twice,
For I have found my destiny.

It is the blindness of our ears.
It is the basis for our fears.
It’s what you hear when no one’s there.
It’s that non-existent shriek of terror.

It screams aloud without a sound.
It’s voices heard when no one’s ‘round.
It is what is said in a lover’s scorn.
It’s the final warning before the storm.

It’s the noise you hear; the bump in the night.
It will make a child shake with fright.
It is a haven for all the crazed.
It’s where voices speak, reality’s hazed.

It is a terror this immortal silence.
‘Tis more deadly than is violence.
It is in death that she triumphs.
She’s a victor known as Silence.
