Silent Screams

Silent screams I hear day and night

They pound my head and give me a fright

Invisible faces before me all the time

Their sullen eyes staring at mine

Hearts bleeding no pain they feel

I clean the stains off my hands

Hoping their wounds would heel

‘Blind your eyes, deafen your ears’

They tell me as I sleep.

‘We’ll be there even in your dreams

Do what you like, try what you may

There is no escape, from our silent screams

P.S. We spend our lives taking our loved ones for granted. Our constant complains and grudges against them kill them everyday and we never even realize it until it’s too late. The ‘I’ in the poem here is just one such person.

    People need to realize that abuse is not just physical, abuse can be verbal and even non verbal. Lovely blog post

      Thanks Ritu! It’s about each of us… we all spend our lives complaining and abusing people but fail to see within ourselves and do somethign about our own inconsistencies…
