The Silent One




I am the one who never speaks
yet I have much to say
The one who is full of words
yet can only say so much
who is silent when the room is full
who disappears in the shadows
who is not noticed
it is almost like a gift
to be able to disappear in the background
yet also a curse.
I do not want to be alone
I do not want to be surrounded
I love being near people
but it is too overwhelming
The Silent One they call me
whose words are hardly over a mutter
whose thoughts can be so loud
who is often dreaming of other worlds
who can be in a room all alone and feel safe
yet be in a room full of people and feel so insecure.
I am in the shadows
I am a daughter of Light
