The Silent Scream by Jacqueline Nash

The Silent Scream

No-one would know what’s going on inside,
outside is so calm and serene,
but beneath the skin my interior is shaking,
my heart is continually palpitating,
and in
 my head I silently scream.

I’m asked to do this and asked to do that,
to say no would seem so mean,
So I say yes with a smile as I bite my tongue,
hiding my feelings from everyone
but in my head I silently scream.

Phone rings when in the middle of a task
but answer polite to the extreme.
All I really want is for them to go away
but I listen to what they have to say
while in my head I silently scream.

Too many things that have to be done
and I’m running out of steam,
but the jobs they have to be completed,
with energy low, almost depleted,
in my head I silently scream.

When next you see me looking relaxed,
things may not be as they seem,
for underneath this cool exterior my friend
how would you possibly comprehend
that in my head I silently scream.

About Jacqueline C Nash

Jacqueline loves to write poetry and has also written a book but none of her work has been published, she writes purely for enjoyment. It has helped her through good and bad times, the last few years of which have been particularly difficult. Her poetry is inspired by nature and life in general. Much of her work is from true life, sometimes stretching the truth a little, but it is also from her imagination. Jacqueline is a firm believer that creativity feeds the soul. As well as poetry she loves music, dance and dabbles in mixed media art and up-cycling.
