Hopeless Cries

Scream. Scream to the heavens.

Roar. Roar at the sky.

Til your voice gives way

to only a weak cry.

As tears flow in rivers

down a tear-stained face

and the saltiness on your lips

is all that you can taste.

Cry. Cry into the wind.

Howl. Howl at the rain.

Til at last you fall

to your knees in pain.

As the words die in your throat

ripped away with such force

and your lungs begin to ache

while your voice becomes hoarse.

Bellow. Bellow against the thunder.

Wail. Wail at the coming day.

Til you finally collapse broken,

still and silent you'll lay.
