Silently Loud…

Photo by Juris Freidenfelds on


The silence in her life

rang like a loud bell

she wanted no one to hear.

The raging loneliness

sank into her bones

solace became one with her

she no longer knew 

how not to be alone


The need to end her pain

beckoned in a beguiling manner

to succumb; an option she pondered.
