What We Need To Keep Us Away From The Edge

When The Silence A Night Cafe Creation by Mike Singleton

Just a few thoughts on how we feel at times,

Sometimes we really need quiet and time to ourselves.

Other Times We Need Company

I usually feel the latter, but actually have to make do with the former.

    Yes!! That was so well done and exactly how I feel on many occasions–both the singing and the screaming. Loved it :)

    This is incredible. Well done. Also, love that version of the song.

  • I'm an introvert who likes being left alone so I prefer the silence to sing instead of scream. Loved this brilliant poem!
