Screaming a Whisper
Aero Raulli, '26

Trying to say something but all I hear is silence
Trying to scream but it comes out as just a whisper
Looking around but nobody is out there
Forever watching never doing
It Grips me and pulls me under
It cuts me and blood runs all over
A mask made of cheer and laughter goes over my face
Some people don't know the true pain
