Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space

Or so they say

Within the depths

Of star-scattered galaxies

Floating in this aeonian void

Her screams were all that I could auralize

Amplified a million times

Attained crescendo

My mind tormented me with all her screams

Her scream of ebullience

When I returned home after several months

Her scream of incredulity

When I said I'm leaving again on another mission

Her scream of denial

When I told her how long I'll be gone

Her scream of devastation

When I said I might not survive to return to Earth

Her scream of agony

When I bid her farewell

The loop repeated continuously

A never-ending cacophonous mantra

Incipient epiphany

Do I need this pyrrhic victory?

Is my mission worth losing her?

Losing me?

Losing us?

Isn't there a panacea for this?

I reminisced our halcyon

Our propinquity

I'm unable to handle this anymore

A scream of anguish left my throat

I'm glad it cannot travel through vacuum

Because I wouldn't want her to hear me perish

I forgot how many new words there were to discover in this tragedy you've told! Still such a beautifully melancholic piece to behold and I still love it! Great work Dharrsheena!
