A Loud Silence

 A Loud Silence

She sits and stares
She wants him there
To help her mend
The wounds she bears


She keeps breathing
Her heart stays beating
She has to cope
Through pain repeating


Then time compiles
More broken smiles
The razor's edge
Helps for a while

In her despair
She ponders where
She'll find help
And one to care

She keeps breathing
Her heart stays beating
She has to cope
Through pain repeating


Thus fall the tears
And those who hear
Turn away
With blind fear.
Don't they know
What hides below
The tattered cotton
What doesn't show
