are you there?

i just need
someone

someone

to hear.

hear my
cries in the dark
my tears in the tempest

my screams in the silence.

are you there?

i just need someone

someone

to understand.

understand my words in the air
my hatred of the noise

my fear of the silence.

are you there?

i just need someone

someone

to care.

care about my hands that are empty
my body that is broken

my self that is alone.

are you there?

i just need someone

someone

to speak.

speak out to sooth the cries.
speak out to sooth the tears.
speak out to sooth the screams.

speak out against the hatred.
speak out against the fear.
speak out against the silence.

speak out for the empty.
speak out for the broken.
speak out for the lonely.

for the missing.
for the persecuted.
for the hopeless.
for the hurting.

The fading.
The hated.
The lost.
The abandoned.

For me.


are you there?
