The Silenced Voice

he says I love you
why did you break me?
while she says nothing

she wants to say something
but lacks the courage to speak

she wants to say
you don't have to do this
I can help you through
we can rise above all
that tears us apart
and fix our damaged hearts

or to say
I didn't mean to hurt you
I ran away because I
have never cared about anyone
as close to as much as
I care about you

or maybe to say
pick up that bottle and
take another swig
I don't care if you
put down the gun
or if you pull the trigger
because I'm nothing without you

the one thing she wants
to say most is
i love you too
but she doesn't
she remains silent
until the shot rings out
into the night air

the realisation of what he has done
suddenly hits him and
he points the gun in another direction...

When they meet up in heaven
she simply asks him why
and all he replies is
because you stayed silent

Breaking Me

whispers in the wind
shame me into silence
keeping me from speaking words
that try and escape my throat

it goes ignored
forever they whisper
their words stab me
making me bleed
bleeding till there is
no blood left to spill

the blood seeps into the sheets
soaking the world in red
and i blame them

they are the reason
that i am trapped
with no way out

they are the reason
suppression suffocates me
and leaves me choking
on my breath

they are the reason
i am cursed to live
forever dying
