If only you’d listen

Silence speaks more than a raging mad man
The cues we ignore turns to a hollow
Ringing out louder than an empty can

The simple nods from” I don’t lash out clan”
The yes, the no, and maybes that follow
Silence speaks more than a raging mad man

Of masked smiles and zipped talks that blows like fan
The red lights, green lights and sparks of yellow
Ringing out louder than an empty can

Wide-eyed grins carry more load than they plan
Watch the rings bag the eyes like a shadow
Silence speaks more than a raging mad man

Those raggedy breaths that feel like you ran
The ones brought by the thoughts of tomorrow
Ringing out louder than an empty can

These gaps reveal more than an x-ray scan
Like the voices from the thoughts that borrow
Silence speaks more than a raging mad man
Ringing out louder than an empty can.
