DEAFENING SILENCE

EVERY DAY I CRY
EVERY NIGHT I PRAY
FOR THE STRENGTH  I NEED
TO SURVIVE ANOTHER DAY
MY DREAMS ARE HAUNTED 
BY MY MEMORIES OF YOU
EVEN IF I COULD 
THESE MEMORIES I'D NEVER UNDO
IN MY DREAMS 
I BEG AND I PLEAD
LEFT THERE CRIPPLED 
DOWN ON MY KNEES
WITH A VACANT EXPRESSION
IN MY EYES YOU STARE
INTO MY SOUL
MY NOW ABYSS FULL OF DISPAIR
I'VE WONDERED AND SEARCHED AND
PONDERED THE REASONS
CONFIDED IN STRANGERS
EVEN FOUND RELIGION WHILE FACING MY DEMONS
I'VE RESORTED TO INSOMNIA
DAY AFTER DAY FEELING NUMB
TO THE POWER OF MY ADDICTION
I WILLINGLY SUCCUMB
JUST TO HEAR YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
I'D ENDURE TORTURE AND PAIN
FOR THE RUSH OF FEELING YOUR EMBRACE
IS LIKE HEROIN IN MY VEINS
THAT'S ALL I CRAVE
THOSE SWEET WORDS LAID UPON MY EARS
BUT YOUR DEFEANENING SILENCE
BRINGS ME TO TEARS
LIKE SILENT THUNDER
RIPPING ME APART
WITH YOUR UNSPOKEN WORDS
YOU'VE SHATTERED MY HEART

    Valerie you are the epitome of that sad tortured poet, desperately expressing to the world your pain, but believing your words are falling on deaf ears... Well I hear it and I feel the despondence and the passion in your words....The one with the heavy heart indeed, Good Job! MC

    Hello Valerie, like silent thunder you exposed your emotions in a very sad and hurtful way. I hate thinking of you like this all broke and shattered... and you are right it is like heroin through the vain. your poem is perfect and deep.... always & forever *LINDA
