Silent Screams


Jason Ryan Qualls

I'm chasing after broken dreams left out in the cold
The suffering is all I have to keep me warm
You took my all and left me lonely and empty
These are the lies of God, the lies of gods

I was never loved, my life means not a damn thing
And I scream inside for there is nothing left of me
And I await the end, the world will go on
Lost all I become and I scream inside for
This pain hasn't made me a better man for you

I await a better day, but it never comes
The reaper beckons me I'm willing to take his hand
Death is where I belong, it will kill the pain
I close my eyes and dream of an awaiting paradise
Take my last breath to end it all
You took my everything and left me with only sorrow
Just as I thought my suffering is over
There is always tomorrow

Since I was born I cried a thousand tears but no one seems to care
God laughs as I waste away
My cries fills the sea with sadness
Does my life mean anything?
Only your smile brought me happiness
Why was I born just to feel broken and torn
I bleed my tears to help face my fears
I'm filled with silent screams

When all is said and done I take the fall
My misery never ends its just begun
I'm drowning in my own sorrow
The love I never had will lead me to my final destiny
My silence means an end to the silent screams.
