Cento Part Two
We are screaming inside but we can’t be heard
Long silence followed then again her voice was stagnant midnight stirred
Pain so extreme as to cause writhing I’m confused by the agony.
Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite terror of their reality.
And a pill won’t take the pain away. But it makes you feel good in a different way.
What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
