Can you hear me wishing for this to end?
Can you hear me singing to what is left of my shattered heart?
Can you hear me screaming from the bottom of my lungs?
Can you hear me calling for a friend?

Can you hear me praying for the light to reach me?
Can you hear me whispering to my aching soul?
Can you hear me begging for someone to stop my suffering?
Can you hear me holding on to what is left of me?

I'm screaming but no-one is listening.
So,stop wiping away my tears.
Stop saying I'm going to be just fine.
Stop telling me I have to be strong.
Stop pretending like you know me.
Start.
Listening.
