Silents

For all
the same reasons
one stands
screaming
Another
teems
through
their silents

Speechless
A loss
for words
Belief
shaking
every nerve
Be it beauty
or beastly
that claims
Inability
to explain
a silence remains

Fearful
Lips quiver
in doubt
Scared
of truths
flying out
All secrets
and desires
choked down
Avoidance
of frowns
a silence resounds

Angered
Betrayals
of trust
Flaring
heated winds
in gusts
Battles
unsurfaced
deeply churning
Personal
inner turmoil
a silent burning

Painful
Tears
of love lost
Tearing
down walls
boundaries crossed
Broken
hearts left
barely beating
Drowning
souls depleting
a silent defeating

A heart
may be breaking
A soul
may be shaking
A body
may be quaking
A life
may be forsaking

Silents sometimes speak
much louder than words

Silence too often whispers
without ever being heard

Silent treatments hurt
when unwilling to interpret

Silents are a reflection
of a persons own world

Kill the black butterflies

An erratic rock
Wails of sorrow
filling the musty air
Darkness lit dimly
by a lone swinging globe

His mind absent
momentarily
before the sting
of raging blood
swam back through
his strangled throat

Pain
screaming agony
ripped him apart
Why can he feel
what should only be
dark

He did everything
the right way
Waited for his parents
to lay down
Wrote his letter
with his broken
black crayon

Fingers
pointing at him
for hurting words
he learned at home
Blame
for the death
of his ex best friend
Tied the noose
around his neck
Wet pants
clung to quivering legs
His piss stung
almost as much
as the strangers arms
that wrapped his teen frame

The voice
of his father
ringing in his ears
Words of worry
Love spilled through
his tears
A stranger
this father is
For the one
that he knew
threw words
of anger and hatred
straight into
his youth

To die
his only escape
only way
to stop the ripples
the waves
that these deadly poisonous
behaviours lace

Why
did he save me
His only lone thought
My words killed
and his go uncaught

These worded butterflies
must be stopped
Their flutters
are deadly
Outrageously
contagious

He exhaled
his shallow breath
and laid
to rest
in the arms
of his father
His note
left floating
in the darkness
of this night
His parting message
‘Please kill the black butterflies’
