Break the Silence

Fri, 01/17/2020 - 18:59 -- Aripari

Break the Silence, end the violence. Let me out, I want to scream and shout. Metal so fine and thin, watch it glide across my skin. Reach out? Every time I speak, I shout! But you don't hear me, though. Maybe it's time for the final blow. Strike the flesh and watch my blood, like a river, flow. Your words are not enough, it's time to call your bluff. Empty words and bottles full of pills, are all you give. But I don't want to drown it out, I want to live! So I'm going to break the silence and end the violence.
