No One Listened

No One Listened

i went about my life
around and around
happy, but
a disease is growing
manifesting

with
eyes always upon me
secrets kept
eventually
rages surface
scars
scabs
a cluttering of bruises

shame

glances only
no one will face me
i am screaming, inside
no one listened

faded time
sleeping smiles awaken
visual signs, vanished
still screaming inside
solid looks
into my eyes
talking at me

a return

around and around
eyes upon me
rage is reborn
scars
scabs
a cluttering of bruises
blood

shame

glances only
no one will face me
i am screaming, inside
no one listened

faded time
cycling and cycling
rage
over and over
years and years

no one listened, not i

the price?
till the end of time

silence destroyed
silence imprisoned

us all
