The silence of your voice is deafening
Its absence deeply felt is extreme
Your thoughts are a jumbled mess
I cannot decipher what you mean

The haunted look within your eyes
Fills me with a profound ache
Your body shaking and the copious tears
Are often more than I can take

Your obvious dejected posture
So heartbreaking to see
I really wish that you would
Unburden yourself to me

Kept locked inside of you
These feelings will fester and burn
They will wear you down
Until death is where you will turn

Let me hold you close
Shelter you from the pain
Perhaps bring you a measure of peace
Help you to feel whole again.
