Silence

I scream, oh how I scream

Writhing in agony

Fire raging through my soul

And yet I am silent

My eyes echoing my pain

And I know you don't care

Oh what pulls me down?

You see me and scoff

Mocking my pain

I utter not a word

But you hear it all; you know my thoughts

Misery loves company,

Especially yours

But I can't feel the warmth

Of the sun on my skin

Silence takes over

And you suggest

I would be better off alone

But you say you know me

How could you know me?

Can I trust you?

Of course I can,

I trust you with my life

And I scream in silence
