Mute

Maybe
Poetry is a
Silent
Way of
Screaming
Maybe within those
Quiet words lie
A broken person
Screeching and
Wailing
Maybe
Writing is the
Only hope left for
Those
Emptied ones who
No longer have a
Voice
To tell their
Dreams
Maybe poetry is
Their last
Desperate attempt to
Share their most
Secret
Precious and ever
Neglected
Feelings
For they can no
Longer
Survive in a
World in which all
Crucial things have
Lost their fragile
Beautiful
Meanings
