In silence
She screams
See me,
Hear me,
Touch me,
Know that
I am here,
But no one listens
To the sound
Of silence,
Or hears
Her quiet plea.
No one comes
To comfort her
Or to ease her pain.
No one speaks
To relieve
The deafening sound
Of silence
That haunts her world.
She longs for
Companionship,
Someone to talk to,
Someone to hold,
Someone to love,
But her fear
Of speaking up
And saying
What is so
For her
Has her locked
In a world
Of silent despair.

I absolutely loved this poem. It almost made me cry. It hit me right in the heart. Beautiful job!

poet....this was remarkably well written. Its flow carries the reader down the path of words so quickly it is over before they even know it began. You do a wonderful job on this and I am anxously awaiting more from you!!
