Drowning

in silence
nothing you can do
but hide
among the people you smile at
along endless shorelines
in between important conversations
put on a brave face
‘cos there’s nothing you can steal
go around and around
look everywhere
but not being looked at
or looked after
the pain across your knuckles
is the reality
you paid no attention to
until the first strike
and your scream drowns in silence.
