    She's Gone Silent
    By bangtail


    She's gone silent, eyes closed.
    Feeling things that no one knows.

    She's gone silent, built a wall.
    Four feet thick and ten feet tall.

    She's gone silent, closed the door.
    She lets in no one anymore.

    She's gone silent, cold and hard.
    Her heart is stone with entry barred.

    She's gone silent, built a levee
    to hold in tears, so cold and heavy.

    She's gone silent, the levee is breaking.
    The tears let loose as her heart is aching.

    She's gone silent, holding in screams.
    Silent tears fall in silent streams.

    She yells aloud at a closed door,
    "I can't be silent anymore!"

    Yay! Thanks, guys! I really liked the other ones a lot better, to be perfectly honest.

    No, this is not my attempt at being humble. I'm far too conceited for that! ;)
