The Black Death (June 25, 2016)

Silence.

Do you understand
What this word means
To me?

Beyond
The standard
Dictionary definition.

You'll find
In a book
Or on-line.

In having
The creative part
Of your soul
Amputated.
 
Without warning.

Leaving behind
Those dark
And destructive voices
Of the past.

Rattling around
In your mind.

Undermining
Whatever self-confidence
And self-esteem
You started life
As a child.

Giving greater volume
And clarity
To suicidal ideation.

Normally
Out of tune
And static filled.

As everything
Becomes
A deadly weapon
In your eyes.
