I'd Say Nothing

I yelled instead of singing the other day and it cost me my voice after only four songs. The next day, only a few hours later really, we had another gig at Punk Island. I don’t know how I sang four more songs.


I’d Say Nothing


I heard a distant rumbling and immediately thought of you.
If the end came before we had a chance to speak,
what would I say in my final moments?
Would I call out to you?
What would I say?

I’d say nothing

The bitter taste of loss would flood my mouth.
The tug of emptiness would stay my tongue.
And I would meet the end silent, scared and alone.

Stay with me.

And I’ll say nothing.
