Silent Scream

“I’m sorry” she whispers timidly
For every mistake she never made
She’d like to fade into the blue
Quietly waiting for her life’s breakthrough

For every word she never said
There’s a backlash of a hundred
Every time she takes a step
Poison shoots out filled with hatred

Her tears form puddles of regret
For every mistake, every misstep
Even the ones she didn’t make
Cause her tears to turn scarlet.

The whispers of her past haunting
Every day, every memory, every dream
Swiftly becoming endlessly daunting
So that every breath becomes a silent scream.

Will her freedom be forever out of reach
Taking one step forward while being pulled by
Her fears stuck on to her dreams like a leech
Draining them as if they were never meant to be?

    i love this stanza:

    The whispers of her past haunting
    Every day, every memory, every dream
    Swiftly becoming endlessly daunting
    So that every breath becomes a silent scream.

    Love this. And I am not afraid to leave the space. I leave it at least twice a day now.

    😉

    Seriously, I love your writing. It is always very moving and quietly bold.

    This sounded like a love scene in Underworld.

    And I mean that in a hot, good way.

    72 minutes to Heroes. Grrrrr, I hate being on the west coast some days…
