I sometimes write about my life's experiences. Sometimes I write to attempt to experience the lives of others. Screams is an attempt to journey into thoughts of depression and isolation.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Depression and Suicide Poems

Screams Of Silence
Begone ye screams of silence, harbingers of pain
Cloaked in isolation, you mock in harsh disdain
My soul is torn asunder, I curse you, God of Hell
As you pierced my tortured soul, what horrors I befell.
You spoke of quiet solitude, to tempt me to your lair
Then lanced me in my troubled heart, to depths of dark despair
Nemesis, I beg of thee, rise up in righteous ire
Protect me from Tisiphone, from Hell's eternal fire
With all my voice I scream to you, protect me from the night
Alas, in forlorn desperation, I journey to the light
Banished to mind's Coventry, I heed the demon's call
Beckoned by the silent screams, I enter Dante's hall.

    This poem was truly beautiful. I love how you use more sophisticated language. Most of the writers this day butcher modern day English in their poetry, yet you just made it sound simply elegant.

  • Isidora
    I like the way u express yourself, def not somethign u see everyday. Your knowledge has certainly contributed to the writing of your poem. When I see your style of writing compared to others I it's unique and it resembles more of , what I call the "older" styles of poems. Keep on writing and learning. Great job.

    You never really know what anyone else is thinking, or what's going on in their mind. Depression isn't just a mental condition, it's more like a disease. I have to say, this was a pretty good poem.
  • Chelsea
    This poem really touched me because that is exactly how I felt last year. I love the words and style of this poem and it should be published somewhere, like in a book, maybe. Oooh, book. yes, that would be good. Yeah. This is AWESOME. about 6 and 1/2 kinds of awesome, but I'll round it to seven.

  • Cassandra
    I love the references to Dante's inferno. This poem is so well written and so dark, I just love it! I printed it out and takced it up on my wall, actually. ^_^ I have to say that if Mr. Chambers doesn't become a published poet (if he isn't already) the world will certainly be deprived of a talented man.
  • Krys
    I loved it. You put it together so perfectly. Perfect word structure. You have serious talent. Youll go far.
  • Em
    amazing work
  • Geral
    Tim you are a true poet, and as every poet you feel deeply the hurts inside, however this is your gift, I pity those who are unable to feel for they do not see the beauty. Your way of writing is refreshing and so well done. Thank you for sharing with others.
  • Aimee
    That was awesome. I dont know what to say. just like omg. that was just great!
  • Kibaroko
    I am at a loss for words- the form and rhyme and every aspect of this poem fit together perfectly. The mention of Dante and Tisiphone really thrilled me; it was a pleasure to read this.
  • Sarah
    well written
  • mariana
    oh god this poem made me cry last month a friend of mine commited suicide. And this just made me think of what he went through and if only he could have gotten help he would still be here.
  • Evans
    I loved the energy in the word structure, and the style. I would love to use this one in my novel---with credit to the author.
  • jessi
    beautifully written so discriptive... wonderful poem
  • Shawn
    I never thought that the ninth gate could be described like a bad friend. But that's what it sounds like to me from this poem, Thy reads many poems but Thyself is still in confusion on depression0. Funny I used to by slightly 'depressed'. Times are diffrent than we believe and every one's story, sane or not, transforms our future indefinitly.
  • sophie
    very powerful
  • Lindsey
    This is the best
  • gilbert_6

    This poem is awesome. I love the words you chose to write it in. I think that your word choice gave the poem so much more depth and meaning than some other's that I have read!
  • nikki
    Your poem says a lot on how you feel. I have once had an anger like you. I turned to writing all my feelings down on paper and it helped me cope with the angry feelings I had inside. I wanted to say your poem is great and to keep expressing your feelings the way you do!
  • Nawal
    I loved the way this was written. It rhymed so beautifully and the words just reached so deep inside me.
  • Janie
    Pretty descriptive
  • Hollie
    A very intelligent and sophisticated poem - the language used is suited to the imagery of Hell and Death...
  • Heather
    I truly felt all the passion and emotions coming from the words of this poem. It was well written, and at one point in time, I could have related very well. I still know the bitter feelings, and they will forever be embedded in my mind.
  • stephanie
