Silent Battle

The ice is thin
The conversation silent
The footsteps on tip toe
A chest of pain
Words are lost
Outside of my head
Where they will not stop
Our lips won’t move
Anger boils and stings
Communication never flowed
Now a dam causing boulder
Too heavy to lift
Too large to ignore
But still the silence swallows us
The light fading
And no one moves
