. Silent Scream

Rating: 3.0

I'm screaming inside...

a silent scream only I can hear.
It's echo bounces off the walls of my mind.

Down the halls of my psyche it careens,
displaying all the forlorn colors of darkness
as it searchs... for my soul.

With outstretched tentacles
it tugs at my being,
drawing me to
it's empty places.

You know...
those places you go
when you are sad
and feeling like the only
grain of sand left on the beach.

In a silent place Feeling empty and sad I got an e mail from shirley. A grain of sand on the beach Now out of my reach made me sad But the reminder she gave me Gave me forgiveness. For now I walk the lonely shores of the delaware Come spring, summer, winter or fall My best friend is awaiting in life, s hall. Hushpup.
