About the Poem

I sometimes write about my life's experiences. Sometimes I write to attempt to experience the lives of others. Screams is an attempt to journey into thoughts of depression and isolation.

Screams Of Silence

Begone ye screams of silence, harbingers of pain
Cloaked in isolation, you mock in harsh disdain
My soul is torn asunder, I curse you, God of Hell
As you pierced my tortured soul, what horrors I befell.
You spoke of quiet solitude, to tempt me to your lair
Then lanced me in my troubled heart, to depths of dark despair
Nemesis, I beg of thee, rise up in righteous ire
Protect me from Tisiphone, from Hell's eternal fire
With all my voice I scream to you, protect me from the night
Alas, in forlorn desperation, I journey to the light
Banished to mind's Coventry, I heed the demon's call
Beckoned by the silent screams, I enter Dante's hall.

This poem was truly beautiful. I love how you use more sophisticated language. Most of the writers this day butcher modern day English in their poetry, yet you just made it sound simply elegant.

I like the way u express yourself, def not somethign u see everyday. Your knowledge has certainly contributed to the writing of your poem. When I see your style of writing compared to others I it's unique and it resembles more of , what I call the "older" styles of poems. Keep on writing and learning. Great job.

You never really know what anyone else is thinking, or what's going on in their mind. Depression isn't just a mental condition, it's more like a disease. I have to say, this was a pretty good poem.
Chelsea
This poem really touched me because that is exactly how I felt last year. I love the words and style of this poem and it should be published somewhere, like in a book, maybe. Oooh, book. yes, that would be good. Yeah. This is AWESOME. about 6 and 1/2 kinds of awesome, but I'll round it to seven.
