Soaked In Silence

As tears fall down,
Around your face,
I see your hurt,
As we embrace.

Behind the pain,
Beyond the tears,
Your eyes reveal,
The hidden fears.

Soaked in silence,
Drenched in fear,
Call my name,
It’s safer here.

Filled with dread,
Tarnished with guilt,
Feelings left behind,
The wall you’ve built.

Talk to me,
Through salty tears,
Let me wash away,
Those tortured years.

Together we can,
Start anew,
Together we can,
See it through.
