original poems by john allen

Silent Screams

another day ends
as so many before
each day gets harder
can't take much more

my heart is empty
been alone too long
my soul is stagnant
this way is wrong

my body slumps
my mind is blank
even the sunlight
now feels dank

i keep on sinking
the bottom nears
my silent screams
no one hears

i dug this hole
all on my own
now it's so deep
it muffles my moans

all hope is gone
the future is bleak
all that is left
is the oblivion i seek
