Screams




Actions scream louder than words.
Covering my ears, trying to block
the piercing sounds of your actions.
Silence can scream, thundering,
drowning out actions and words.
I scream but you don't hear me.

  2. I like your twist on the old saying of actions 'speaking' louder than words. Sometimes, they do scream.
