On the other side of silence
Lay my broken heart
Longing for the words I wish I could say
But I remain speechless
Unassertively speechless

On the other side of silence
I sit screaming inside
Crying tears that stay locked inside
Clawing their way to the surface
Only to be shoved back down
Into the silence

On the other side of silence
So much pain and hurt lay buried deep inside
But I must not let that demon out
For fear that if the gates open
I won’t be able to close them again

On the other side of silence
I sit in so much confusion
Unable to find the words
To repair all the hurt and pain
I am speechless
Outside of this page

On the other side of silence
My pen scratches across the page
Draining my words like blood through my pen
So private and free
I will keep it locked away safe
Never to breathe the life of day

On the other side of silence
Lay my broken heart
Trying to repair the pieces
But suffering…in silence
