Impenetrable Silence

A voice cried out but

no one heard, lost as they were

in their own concerns

Over time the voice grew still

and they wondered what went wrong.

    Most readers will have a cry from a voice that haunts them. Mine echoes from around age 14. I can only hope the haunting has made a difference in how I respond to others. Thank you for creating this poem! Emily
