His Front Yard

Deep Red Scream

the deep red scream
silent as the darkest night
it cuts through the thin veil
letting anguish flow
like a stream released
filling a nameless ocean

the deep red scream
no one hears the pain
it cuts everyone it touches
letting doubt flow
like a river released
filling a bottomless ocean

the deep red scream
drawn from the deafening silence
it opens never healing wounds
letting fury flow
like a torrent released
filling a lifeless ocean

the deep red scream
a desperate stillness follows
it suffers the drops that fall
letting sleep come
or at least a kind of release
to push the wave upstream
