Silence is my name.
I’m stranger to the Muses,
never sung nor breathed,
never dreamt nor slept.

I live in the shadows,
my color is darkness.
People neglect me
and I don’t mind.

I need not friends
for my nature is odd.
I’m seeing everything
yet I’m blind and deaf.

I know no compassion,
I’m devoid of feelings
yet I wish to touch
and sooth this pain of yours.

Ephemeral are my desires,
my wishes are doomed.
I do not regret, not at all,
for Silence is my name.
