Echo (Poem #18)

I scream your names as I stand outside in the dead of the night,

At the top of my lungs,

I let the cold air rush in, Not caring for the pain.

I scream out in pain and wrath for you both,

You're the only friend's that I have,

And I don't care about the consequences, I just want you both in my life.

My voice is like a distant echo you can't hear when I scream,

I am trapped in my own voice,

I am not able to communicate, My echo is fading away.

Can you hear me now?

I am shouting at the top of my lungs in this cold winter's night,

And I don't even hear a sound, Not of myself or either of you.

I pretend that I am alright when you're both gone,

But the truth is,

Nothing is alright when you're away, I just go crazy,


Just listen to my voice, even if it is a whisper,

That is all I have to give now.

Please try to understand how much I need you both as I scream at the top of my lungs,

Just try to hear my tempered voice as I cry within,

The echo is all that I have, It's all that you can hear.


Just listen to me carefully, Hear my every strain,

I am still screaming, waiting for you both to be able to hear me clearly.

I am out on the edge,

Now crying out both of your names,

And I can't even remember my own, Or why it ever even mattered to you.


Listen and hear my name, Don't let me forget it,

Don't let me forget yours.


Just hear me scream for you both one last time, Before I have to go.
