This entry is all about the word "Silence." I chose to be a little more...odd...this time, going with something somewhat poetic. Does it work? You tell me. But the idea is both mother and son are now made silent--both for different reasons--but both linked all the same.
Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

Made to suffer: a wounded heart taken from a wordless mother.

Giving up her last full tears as they fell to wet the soil.
Deep underground his coffin lay -- the boy never passed his vestal age.
His battled frame saw no more pain; hers would know no end of turmoil.
