Uncertain, Silent, Words
Crying, Pleading, Screaming unheard
Black, emotionless tries
Passed on unknowing Conversation dies
Heat flat lines
No beat. Fear shivers down spines
Of books, volumes in my head
Of memories, moments, useless information ---- dead
Cold corpse of what could have been
Breathless, untouched care, alone again
Darkness pressed,
Down on eyes, ears, mouth, nose
Identifying faces who parade behind eyelids in rows
Upon rows of items full of emptiness, a façade of order
Taking the unending depth of despair and trying to give it a fancy border
Border line insanity when it’s put behind an electric case
It stays protected and safe
From all the tries to set it free
Force this pitiful creature to leave
Yet it’s nothing but a machine
Not knowing what to mean
When given the sacred charge
Of conveying the very depths of the heart
There is no pulse of pushing keys
Trying to unlock what cannot be
Tired of living life through empty screens
