The heart was throbbing,
her fists clenched,
her skin had paled,
– eyes shut,
in the split of a second,
the pain was all gone.
The five present souls had lessened by one,
the deafening silence was second to none,
a ground well set since the truce begun
no tears nor words would cause your return,
the beginning of a new journey,
the only words we spoke
were the tears that flowed
a story untold
Our hearts ache, and we bleed inside
In our minds now, do you, reside
We cry for our moments of despair
Awake, yet we weep for ours, our fair share
Of this moment, we are aware
For the inevitable, we fail to prepare
For our loved ones, we beg for one more hour
Time, pause. Life, stop.
For these you have the power.
So would you respond? The silencer!
