Screams of Silence
by Chantal Chaput
Deep in your mind, lost in your soul,
these are the fears you keep to your own.
Worry and concern of perception from others,
you tuck them away tight under the covers.
When you're alone and no one is near,
the voices become perfectly clear.
You think you're crazy, you're losing your mind,
there has to be another sign.
Confusion and doubt beneath the surface remains,
this edging fear that releases the pain.
Buzzing and nudging you sense deep inside,
a gentle breeze opens your eyes.
For that brief moment you roll on your side,
it was just a dream rushing by.
