Beneath Silence

Silence is the cruelest weapon 

You teach her to swallow back tears 

Master the art of snide and contempt 

Fight fire with fire, burn for burn. 

Tell me, how long will it take to unlearn 

All the hate she festers within, all the hurt? 

With luck, she’ll dance atop broken glass 

Scald the coffin; bury the urn. 

Forget the blades of your selfish lies 

Forget the nights of sleepless cries 

Forget the cold hands that carried her head 

Forget the trust you never had. 

Silence was the home you raised her in 

Queen of suppressed anger and sin.
