Silence Unleashed

Your presence

constantly lingers near,

penetrating my thoughts

perpetuating fear—

Reminding me, remain silent

protect the painted veneer;

A facade you have created

carefully constructed

to conceal the malevolent darkness

but, I see it in your eyes.

Perversion is your demise.

Soon all will know

Who you truly are

Because I will be silenced


No other will experience

Your depravity

Your delirium

Finding courage, I become

An unseen warrior.

Publicly now exposed

For all the world to see.

The chains become yours

I finally fly free...
