Broken Child {An Inspiration}

There’s a silence
That can speak your name.
No one listens
But you always wait
Searching.

The darkness of your eyes
Hiding only what we conceal.
Your stare
Broken
Only by our own fears.

There is truth in the darkest, purest pain

We’ve forgotten you
Left you in that cold abyss.
Where have you been?

I wonder
What have you seen
Beyond those dark
Unspeaking
Eyes?

Even silence can carry a story

A story…

Colored black and white
Blood red
And the green meadows
Of whatever dreams
Come to you now.

But only that silence can ever really tell…

Where have you been….

I wonder.
What
Can pain you now?
You look through me
And suddenly
Everything is hollow
You are the only one
Still waiting
Still whole
