Unheard cries

In this life we are given a choice

and some find it hard to relate

When the darkness falls over

Feelings turn to bitter hate

Simplicity is a daily challenge

And tomorrow another debate

The fragile shimmer of joy dulls

And yesterday is mere lies

Suffocating  words of confusion

And all hope dies

Left with nothingness and pain

Echoes of unheard cries

If only you had heard me

As I whispered to be saved

Now with torturous thoughts

My mind is enslaved

No longer able to enjoy

The path life has paved

So under the shadows I wait

Silence and sorrow surround me

Without you to pick me up

I fall deep into the waking sea

Gone away into the night

All because you wouldn't set me free

The End
