0262 Scream [26 May 1999]

Ever hear a silent scream?
No? well, no one can
except those who scream,
they are the only ones to hear it.

It is the cry of help
that echoes across a lonely mind.
Where the frustrations of life
consume every heartbeat.

It is the silent plea
of a woman
who longs for someone
to hold her at night.

It is the longing
of a teenager
who is left standing
alone on a dance floor.

Do you hear them?
I do, because I am
one of those who scream
silently in the night.
