"Silent Screams" by Kelly Seale

Poetry By: KellySeale

When that voice inside your head finally wins...

Silent screams
Echo deep inside my head
Pain so intense, so deep
You wish you were dead
I'm in a hole
So dark, so deep
I'm so alone, so scared
So filled with dread

The knife on my wrist
Seeking some insane release
The voices, the screams
Never resting
They are always there
Telling me what to do
Pulling me down
Telling me which way to go
Confusing me
They can't make up my mind
They don't seem to listen
And I'm drowning in my own blood
I'm in Hell
Burning there forever
Alone and broken
Forever left behind

I'm all alone in my madness
Desperate to escape
The pain, the sadness
The screams
They are still there
Desperate for understanding
I can't breathe now
I can't get any air

In desperation
I cut jagged letters
Words that don't seem to make any sense
Bloodletting the evil
Gouging my eyes, so I cannot see
And somewhere
In-between the electric buzz
From the wires inside my head
A moment of sanity escapes
The sociopathic realm
Of the silent screams
Of the living dead

And suddenly, my cell begins to ring
And I just freeze
I can't move an inch
I can't do a goddamn thing
Pounding, pleading
Desperate cries to help
Calling me to unlock the door
The voices become louder
The screams, louder still
Flashing red and blue lights
Reflect off the blood pool on the floor

There is silence
There is peace
The screams have stopped
And I know the voices
Can't hurt me anymore
