Anguish.

Fills the room

Empty sorrow.

Hearts are aching,

But you'd never know.

Cries are silent.

Tears invisible.

Sadness unspoken.

It builds,

Coagulating,

Clogging our hearts,

Our minds,

With misery.

Searing pain,

Cannot be restrained.

Cannot be withstood.

Pulsing,

Stabbing,

Slashing,

Tearing,

'Till there's nothing left

But tattered remains.

Can we save them?

Or are they gone?

I reach out,

Finding nothing.

Seeking you,

But gaining everything else.

More than can be restrained.

More than can be withstood.

Don't forget me.

Don't leave me lying here

Alone.
