The Echo of Silence



Echoed cries of a child breaking the night;
The void of space: point of concentration
Her body lay silent, too tired to fight

A blanket of red all stained with white
the muffled sounds of silent exhaustion
Echoed cries of a child breaking the night

A velvet dress is tossed away from sight
More articles join emancipation
Her body lay silent too tired to fight

The flood washes over her with such might
The void of space: point of concentration
Echoed cries breaking through the silent night

Silence, silence, silence filling the night
Save the sob of a released frustration
deafening silence brings no compensation
Echoed cries of a child breaking the night
Her body lay silent ending the plight
