If you are met
With silence from another.
You may not know what screams
Echo in the silence of that person's soul.
Screams, not uttered,unheard
But no less a torment
To that other one,
Who cannot, through those screams
Hear your words, or sounds.
I wish we could speak and hear
From soul to soul, heart to heart,
Instead of from mouth to ear, and ear to mouth.
