Deafening

The silence is deafening.

So crank up the music and listen to the sound of your tears hitting the ground

For your soul feels the things too deep for words to communicate.

So look me in the eyes and read the sorrow in my mind.silence

Hurry and touch my heart before I change my mind and slam it shut tight.

For I rather be locked inside than left alone in silence again.

The silence is deafening.

It’s deafening by the confusion the lies being whispered to me in shouting screams bring.

The lies have become a friend by familiarity.

They tug and pull at the core of my existence.

They shove my face in the mud and cut my skin until I bleed.

Yet, I keep letting them in because that’s all I’ve known.

The silence is deafening.

So break through the silence and cut out what’s deafening.

For Your love brings peace in the turmoil of the pain that consumes my soul.

You look me in the eyes and know the sorrow in my mind.

You cut through the door to my heart I’ve slammed shut.

And although it’s a struggle I’m learning that with You I’ll never be left alone in silence again.

The silence renews my heart.

It whispers love from my Jesus that sings to me louder than the lies.
