Silent Scream

The noises in her head go on without ceasing for years.

“My parents said you are too bright and you won’t hang around.”

“Do you want to marry me? Once we are married, I am eligible for an apartment allocation from my company.”

“When you were so far away, I was so lonely. She was just there for me and I couldn’t resist.”

“Maybe we will consider each other if neither of us is married by 30.”

“Everybody pisses me off including you.”

“You built the wall so tall. You are impossible to love.”

“She emotionally abused me. I don’t feel safe around her.” He said that to the marriage counsellor.

“Stop! You liar, cheater, coward, abuser. All of you, shut the fuck up!” She curls up to a ball and screams in silence.
