the sound of silence

Not my photo; credits to photographer

the sound of silence
can be so loud.
you want to shout out
that you’re not okay,
but a constant war rages on between your mind and your mouth.
you don’t want to burden others with your troubles,
so you keep every thought to yourself.
while it may make you seem aloof,
you yearn for anyone to take notice.
just as positivity radiates at our highest highs,
we all need that energy reciprocated at our lowest.
