Scream In the night-poetry..A poem
Why a poem
words are gift that writers use to share their dreams with others, but sometimes words are a way for the soul to speak. to me that is the beauty of poetry. from the high joys to the deep dark of human emotion, it can all be expressed through a poem.
this is an older poem, from my past.... I am sharing it in the hopes of letting certain emotions free.
Scream in the night.....
Did you hear me scream?
The still of the night shattered
Or did you think it nothing more than a dream
As my whole world fractured.
Did you think to step out?
Into the unknown dangers of the night
To see what the screaming was about
While you stayed safe in the light.
Safe behind your door
As I cried for aid
Did you hear the evil roar?
As my body he did invade
As it carved up my soul
Did you think to call?
As he swallowed my innocence whole
Did you do anything at all?
I fought a desperate losing battle
Surrounded by hundreds yet no one came
We all knew i would lose the struggle
Humiliated alone and shamed
Yet still you stay
Listening to my pain
Too scared to move, not sure what to say
So shocked, frozen into frightened refrain.
So stay safe behind your locks
Knowing while i scream
The evil will never ever knock
Upon your own house of dreams
