Silence

I cannot speak;

There are no words left for me to say.

I cannot talk;

All that's left is for me to pray.

Pray that you will see the agony,

That once lined my face.

Pray that you will see the tears,

That no longer leaves a trace.

The pain that once left me

Doubled over in horror.

The scars that have bidden me

No longer able to soar.

My smiles seems fake,

But it's all that I can do.

My heart once did break,

Though I'm not entirely blue.

All that I try,

I cannot change back.

As though I've completely

Become lost from the track.

Silently I speak,

Though it sounds more of a yelp.

The word won't come from my lips.

That word is help.
