In a dark cold room
The sound of emptiness
Screamed gently in the night
Shattering the silence
With its eerie presence
Never offering sight
Giving away nothing
It shouted once more
Screaming louder
Then ever before
Silence still broken
But will it last
Quickly he turned
He turned very fast
Echoes none
Odd in itself
I wanted to run
No where to go
Covering my ears
The silence still screamed
I had no fear
Had this been dreamed
Yet a nightmare
A glimpse from the past
I could not remember
A past
I could not remember
At last
Breaking the silence
A real scream at last
I awoke
As if from a bad dream
