Deafening Silence

Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil

She cries for help but to her dismay
No one hears for they all turn away
Their eyes are closed to the pain she sustains
Blind to each strike though evidence remains
They are deaf to the screams that ring in the night
That voice that calls out in such anguish and fright
No one speaks up or comes to her aid
No one steps in to end the tirade
The screams will become silent, over at last
But silence is now deafening and so vast
They convince themselves that they bear no guilt
Her blood that night wasn’t by their hand spilt
