Screams by Juliana Vargas (First posted on Myspace Blog March 2008)

Screams


Piercing the darkness of night

They wake me from my sleep

Like only the darkest night terrors can

I pinch myself and hide under my bed

Sliding on the wooden boards



I sit in your sunny kitchen and recount the memories

You pat my hand and pass me the sugar

Trying to make my bitter memories go down a little easier

"It never happened"

"You always did suffer from terrible nightmares"



You smile

But your eyes are dead

Shattered windows

On the soul that I hope will burn in hell

They tell the truths of our life together



You with your uncontrollable rage

Me with my uncontrollable anxiety



I wrung my hands

When what I really wanted

Was to your wring the truth from your wretched throat
