I sit in my silence.
So sweet to my ears.
To some, loud as sirens,
But it calms my fears.

I can make no mistake
If I don't say a word,
And my heart cannot break,
And I cannot hurt.

Oh, my sweet solitude!
I'm trapped in its cage.
I need to know the truth.
Your lies, I can't face.

Some ask why I'm quiet.
Some think I'm a prude.
But I love me, silent,
In sweet solitude.
