A scream exits my lips, reverberating all around,
No one can hear it, loud but makes no sound,
I've attempted happiness, but for me it fails,
Because I can't seem to pull off all that it entails,
I hear my scream's echo, back from where it went,
And yet all the while my scream is silent.

Tears drip down my face and off my chin,
Blood drips down my arm from where the blade's been,
Where has my voice gone? I cannot speak,
I've choked away vocal cords, no words for the freak,
I look in the miiror, seeing a figure broken and bent,
The only sound is broken glass, because my screams are silent.

Another sleepless night in the fetal position,
Insomnia strikes me down again and again,
No one can hear me, so I'm truly alone,
They cannot hear my cry, scream or moan,
Paper and ink are the only way to express thought,
With my screams so silent, its all I've got.

I'll never wake from this nightmare, from this sick dream,
And I'll never speak again, except for my silent scream.

thx...i usually get replies (in regular life) like: "You need help?", "Do you want a hug?", or "Maybe you should show this to your parents/therapist." Its really nice to have a place with positive feedback, however any critique on the work itself would also be appreciated.
