Muted.

Can you hear me when I scream in the darkness?

You cannot.

Because you’ve gone deaf from your own screams.

As have I – from mine.

Like fools, we scream!!!!!

Louder.

Straining our voices,

Raging our souls!

HEAR ME!

we yell.

SEE ME!

we bawl.

With hoarse voices.

Broken. Weak.

Our cries are but a whisper…

Squeaks of mice among men.

Still,

We keep yelling.

Wailing where the light don’t show.

and the sound don’t go.

Hoping someone

will shut up long enough

to just hear

us…

I mean

You…

But,

who?
