The Prison Of Silent Screams

Written In Response To:

Your Daily Word Prompt – Association – April 22, 2019

Word Of The Day Challenge – Fort

Long days, lonely nights. Too bad we're not allowed to scream ~Prince (artist unknown)

For many years she hid inside

The fort she built around her mind

To protect herself from the sharp tongues

Of the people who always surrounded her

And no one ever knew about her

Secret associations with voices from

Other realms of darkness and torment

She always appeared strong, confident,

Successful at whatever she strived to accomplish

It was how she survived the atrocities

Of her violent, degrading childhood

She was never allowed to speak about the

Devastation committed against her soul and body

Then one day, a tragedy happened that unleashed

The walls of her fort to become completely destroyed

It was then the voices from the other realms

Were able to take full control of her mind

Pulling her in so many directions and emotions that

It left her locked away in a prison of silent screams.
