- Books, Literature, and Writing
Crack of pain
Listen... don't you hear?
Silence screams with fear
Worry and despair fills the air
Your touch is cold, eyes frail
I look at your empty stares
I ask why are you scared?
Tears started to flow from your eyes
You dare not speak your desires
You fake a smile and laugh closing your eyes
You swear not to speak a word but cry
"Speak!" I say. "Tell me what you feel!"
You turn back and left, wanting to scream
You'd rather leave and keep the words
Words that will express pain and remorse
You don't want your vulnerable side exposed
Because your voice will betray you with its reproach
