The Thoughts that Wake You

Do you know what it's like to scream
so silently at night
as your chest caves in and your gut
pulls into itself.
A pressure rises and rises in your chest
bursts past your lungs and up your
throat and your jaw trembles as it
tears open,
but other pressure tries to close it.
But then, no sound comes out.
Agony is silent as she screams.
Like the sobs you hide in your pillow
and the tears that stream so silently
down your cheeks,
and the shaking in your body
is the only betrayer that you are awake.
But it is night, you are under the covers
they're hiding you and the sorrow
smothered by silence.
Do you know what it is like to scream
without a sound?
