SILENCE

My hours of silence are screaming

words never spoken

and truths hidden in a mirror.

My hours of silence are screaming

for the life I never lived

for  everything I imprisoned

in a secret corner of my heart.

My hours of silence are screaming

for  a dead dream

for the rain that soaked my existence

for  a tear left

at the corner of my eyes.

My hours of silence are screaming.

Can anybody hear the scream?
