Silent Treatment

Fri, 01/12/2018 - 21:04 -- kelbel4



There's cruelty few people know

One that is vast but

Meager, silent 

But deafening 


Words can injure hearts

Words consume worth

Yet Absence of words

Is scarcity of food 




When you walk through a hallway

So crowded, so loud

Your footsteps seem to

Barely touch the ground


Everyone talking

Yet no one hearing

In a symphony, tears

Tears, they stream 


Silence hurts as much

As scars and insults alike

In a way, it's bullying 

When no one cares
