Screamed, dreamed?

Whispering in terror

fearfulness apparent in wide,

translucent eyes beggingThe_Scream

the silent to hear

but she cannot scream

she cannot hear

there is only the nothing

that comes when unanswered

pleas become shouts of regret

there is nothing to be done

there is nothing to be learned

there is always something

that can be awakened

if we look with everything

save our eyes

which can only hear

silent screaming coming

from the shouting of

an amplified heart
