She wants to scream

Scream so loud 

The ghosts from her past 

Hear and cower 


All she can do 

Is whisper 

Salty tears into a towel 

Late at night 

Muffling her deafening cries so she doesn’t wake the neighbors 

She shakes from the anger 

She suffocates from the sadness 

Each nostril plugged by the tears she holds back 

She once looked at him so lovingly 

Now she wishes to cause him pain 


Like the throbbing in her skull 


Like the lies people told her of her future 

She cries into her towel at night sometimes 

Rivers down her cheeks 

Drowning the hopes

Murdering her dreams 

And even as she lays there broken 

He lays beside her, dreaming
