Silent Scream {a flash fiction}

Silent Scream {a flash fiction}

“and what about the damage it caused me, I have to live with it my whole life?” This is what I would want to say. But no! I chose not to speak. I chose not to say a word. For what good would it bring if I speak when no one listens? No one understands? So, calmly, I gather myself up and take it from the start. From the bottom; me and my silent screams. I’m better off that way.

People believed you are in pain only when they see you bleeding. But not all pains have been cinematic and melodramatic.

It’s the silent scream that’s most painful of all.

And that’s why sometimes i wonder “can i just trade life with this little cute furry kitten, enjoying life with no complications?….just for once… for once…because i am really tired… ‘nakakapagod na’ [it’s tiring]”

I just need a moment to rest.

I am tired.

    If you want to scream loud enough.. someone will hear you … but maybe a silent scream is the only sound you want to utter .. 😉🌏

    Sometimes people don’t notice what’s right in front of them. The pain the misery goes unnoticed. And trading places with someone like this kitty seems so attractive! Thanks for joining in with this unique take Mich.

  5. Mich your story is so beautiful and I agree with you at times we all want to scream and go away and get rid of our tensions and burdens. To be taking places with a cat is so nice.

  11. I screamed silently a few days ago. Sometimes you’d like to belt it out but when you’re at work, a loud scream may get you fired. 😱 Excellent flash fiction which is really more factual for me. xo
