A Silent Battle

I scream and scream
Get me out of here
Away from here now

Please
I’ve had enough

But nobody hears
Nobody listens
And nobody isn’t a name

Louder, I cry for help
I slash my arms
And tears stream down my face

When will it be over?
How can I make it end?
I yell and yell

But nobody hears

Exasperated
I rock back and forth
My body curls
And writhes in pain

My brain
Way too full
Pleads for help
I need a release

But nobody hears

And that’s when I realize

It’s a silent battle
My face is dry
And my throat is not sore

It has all been fought
inside my head

And nobody knows

I love it - it's very powerful, and conveys the raw feeling and emotion that the narrator is feeling. Great job!
I'd love if you looked at my poetry. thanks!
