The sound of silence   Leave a comment


Hello, darkness, my old friend I’ve come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision.  That was planted in my brain Still remains

Within the sound of silence In restless dreams I walked alone

Narrow streets of cobblestone. Beneath the halo of a street lamp

I turned my collar to the cold and damp. When my eyes were stabbed

By the flash of a neon light. That split the night

And touched the sound of silence and in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand people, maybe more,people talking without speaking

People hearing without listening. People writing songs

that voices never share…and no one dare

Disturb the sound of silence.”Fools,” said I, “you do not know

Silence like a cancer grows. Hear my words that I might teach you,

Take my arms that I might reach you  but my words like silent raindrops fell, 

And echoed in the wells of silence and the people bowed and prayed…

and whisper’d in the sound of silence.”
