Silent Suffering

The worst pain, I think
Is one that is silent
No one can hear you scream
Not that they would care
One thinks...

She tells him all her heartbreaks
And he makes her laugh without fail
Cheers her up and helps her find
Herself when she's lost
But her heart keeps breaking
Because she fails to see
The love of her life
Is right in front of her
But he keeps quiet, silent
And dies inside
Little by little

The father keeps reminding his son
To never do it again
But the son turns away
And runs from him
The father knows the better
Because he's done it before
But the son doesn't believe it
And the father is forced to keep silent
And await the news of his son's death

He's always picked on
Always excluded
Never shown any mercy
And for what reason?
The answer eludes him
As he suffers in silence
Abandoned
Fuel to the fire

The silent scream. Yes. The thoughts within ourselves. Some that we hold. Some that we share. The silent scream is the one that can destroy us though if it goes on to long...

I know.
