A shriek,
Like a roaring hurricane,
It’s the sound of her pain,
It’s piercing!
It’s hurting!
It’s loud!
Can you hear the sound?
It’s a woman scream.
Her scream says;
‘Hear me out too’
In a pool of pain, she swims
Abused and battered
Her once perfect dream shattered
It’s loud
Can you hear the sound?
It’s a woman’s scream.
