liquid leaking, writing across your face in script best understood by voiceless scribes.
From Deviant Art


Speak with bloody tears
when lips, now sealed,
cannot part.
Once you were shy,
hiding behind skirts,
silent in the corner,
trembling in the closet,
safe until you spoke.
Then you were hushed.
And now you try to speak,
liquid leaking from blood-shot eyes,
writing across a blank face
in a script best understood
by sightless scribes.
