Hated silence

Forcing myself to live in content without a decent job/ shelter/ food is itself an impossible task – I didn’t flinch. A passionate couple Fire-Air, waltzed through my native, my forest, trampling on lives small & big – I didn’t cry. After HER party, I went to see the charred landscape, my heart thumped wild, could feel soul in throat – I didn’t stop my proud heart, I let her to feel, I knelt to beat coal-black ground, I thumped chest, I flayed my hands to sky, I howled, Roared, wailed, cried I clenched my fist, boxed at guiltless air, I called his partner names – I sobbed back to silence. My impotent-proud silence, My hated silence.
