    Silence

    Can you not hear me?
    I am screaming...
    In my silence..
    The loudest silence of all times...
    I am screaming so hard...
    I feel my heart would burst...
    And this pain in my chest...
    Has never been like before...
    I am asking for help..
    Can you not see?
    My eyes, my lips, my face...
    The frowns behind this smile...
    That need a little bit of someone..
    Anyone...
    Hello? Is anyone there??
    Am I not audible?
    Can you not speak?
    A few words I want to hear...
    For mine are stuck in my throat..
    I try but they won't come out!
    I fear no one will come
    And no one is listening
    To this cry in the night..
    It is dark! Pitch dark here...
