Voiceless, speechless, caged, enraged. Entrapment within oneself. Externally, internally silenced. Drowning in the tide; wading in quicksand that rips the salvation from the soul. Wonderless, wordless as they bind and tie the very existence and essence of eternity. Gagged, bound by all that is dark, treacherous and treasonous. A poison to the heart, a mirrored reflection to the soul that shatters in the darkest of nights. Tears, fears, ripped, shredded, and dreaded dreams to reality. Impaled and swallowed by the merciless depths of the pits that echo damnation. Gripping, clawing for escape, screams drowned in the monotone of the crowds which continued forward toward their doom. Never heard or seen, as the footing slips beneath you and you fall, once again silenced.
