Breakthrough

This heart beats to the rythm of a broken melody 
unsung, unheard. It tears through these walls of imprisonement 
that i created with tears 
that flowed, flooded and drowned me 
into my world of nothingness 
where only the echo of my fading voice 
drains my thoughts 
where feeling consume and describe me 
even i do not understand why 
I let this be 
why i let me 
be bound by this chain 
that has become a part of this being 
seeing is believing, they say 
but I am inviscible 
unseen, unknown 
striving to be recognized 
wanting to escape this torture of silence.
