Silent Lullaby

Silent Lullaby

Unvoiced words tether to tumultuous silence
Melancholic emotions enshroud my soul
Crestfallen heart still yearns for your presence
Pursued by disgruntled maternal feelings

Melancholic emotions enshroud my soul
Bustling with dreadful aisles of unuttered feelings
Nurturing my void, smothering my womb
Ravaged by somber hues of a bleeding heart

Crestfallen heart still yearns for your presence
Pine to be caressed by the dazzling days of yore
Muffled crooning echoes deep, glistening my core
Still unblemished despite being put to sleep

Pursued by disgruntled maternal feelings
I succumb, humming a silent lullaby
Bedraggled memoir put to rest
Buried ‘neath unfulfilled promises to motherhood.
