The Void

A resting place for words unspoken

Chamber for the muted scream

Tears damned in, like stagnant waters

Yearning for a flowing stream.

 

‘Tuts’ and ‘ahs’ and sheepish glances

False encounters, friendship trials

(Unyielding pain a fair exchange

For awkward, insincere smiles?)

 

This heart a mere reference point

And trauma just a word

Solipsism – the ‘educated’ path

For grief unheard.
