First of all, I apologize - English isn't my native language, but I wanted to share those.


speak

speak,
lips sewn shut.
confess the silence
bloody web
captivating words and thoughts
forbidden to turn to
speech and sound.

speak,
silenced lips,
pierced by silk and steel
accuse
the hand that held them
let your silence speak
louder than words.

speak,
lips sewn shut,
proclaim the truth
tear the web of silence
wrap thoughts once more
into words and sound.

silenced lips,
speak.
those who drown words in silk and steel
accuse
of murder of life.

break the silence.
speak the truth.


A time for silence

Enough of confessions,
Lips, once sewn shut.
You broke the silence,
Confessed your fate.
Enough.
The time for peace has come.

The blood has dried.
Let the wounds now heal
And the pain fade away.
Let this child
That carried my burden
Now find her rest.

There was a time for words.
But now
it's time for silence.
