In Mute

Updated on December 13, 2011


Burry emotion deep inside

Faking happiness is nearly impossible

A young girl sat in mute; she cried


Tighten chest, shallow breath

Lingering in pain

She felt trapped in a dark well or carried off by a crimson cloud


Bruised marked her skin

Scar formed her heart

Soul weakens by her painful cries; she wants to die


Seeing her mother drunk, becoming violent

Remind of her childhood life

In her mind, memories rewind and there she sat feeling miserable

      Chanroth, What raw and searing experiences are conveyed with your brutal images and graphic words! In particular, I like the way in which you give the child the voice which she was too afraid and ashamed to use.

      Thank you for sharing, etc.,

      Derdriu
