Silent Screams

A silent scream from my lips... is something you can't hear!
A care free attitude....a mask to cover fear!
A smile on my face... to hide the tears!
A head held high.....but I want you near!

It's all one big mask... an illusion of sorts....
From everything Iv'e seen........ everything Iv'e been taught
But still you think you know me.
You think I cannot feel?

Cause I spoke some words... cause you seen some actions?
Cause I fit into categories..... because you got a reaction?

What makes you.... you? Are you what you say?
Do you cover your self in a cloak full of shame?
People like you... have no grey!
Trapped like a slave....making others pay!
Self centred crust....be what you may!
Your soul is on fire,..soon to decay!
Grow a heart...unchartered terrain...
Learn to feel...more than pain!
Open your heart to the sun and the rain
Lose yourself...release the chains
Put down that finger...looking to blame
Drown in your sorrow.. feel the shame
Then learn and grow...a different game.
Still the same person.. but a heart can change...
Remove all the poison...within your veins...
Swallow your pride...try to refrain....
Your not special... take back that claim...
I feel like you, I hurt the same!
You lost all this along the way!
We grew apart... we both were afraid!
But we made this bed... and now we must lay!
The tide has gone out...leaves a empty bay!
The moon has risen... goodbye to the day!
Our love is gone....like all things fade.....
And now I am lost...the creation failed
The relationship a lie... so easy to bail

Built on loneliness... convinence for both
Stuck in our ways.... limited growth
Wall covered hearts... swearing oaths
Two lost souls planting oats
And this....... now........ the end result
Enemies for life............no grain of salt
So if you see me.. stay away give me room.... give me space
Out of loneliness... my heart might race
But the love I have for you... is filled with disgrace
Your lips have nothing, a callous taste
The life you live, full of waste
And if I'm with you.......... I lose my grace
My sanity...integrity, my safe place
The smile will leave my face
My days will fill with grey
With you there is only ever one shade.
Your way........or the highway
I exit the game, no longer your slave
No longer willing to be played.

Damn i really feel you on this poem. You read my mind with every single word. Keep writing you have a talent to be heard by others with similar experiences.

This is really inspiring, and it makes me want to do things that I know I'm not capable of, though it's nice to dream, I loved this :) thanks for sharing.

One day... your scream will be heard and everyone shall see clearly. The chains that hold you will shatter and you will break free...
