Falling on deaf ears

Someone tell me you can hear me.

Please assure me you are listening.

I cannot breath for I am drowning in silence.

Please just whisper a kind word.

Just make me feel that you can hear me... see me!
My throat is raw from screaming

My mind is raging with a bunch of angry thoughts

But no one can hear and no one cares enough to try..

I'm running out of options and w̶o̶r̶d̶s̶ hope.

When I look into your eyes I am searching for a sign..

A sign that you really t̶r̶u̶l̶y̶ see me.

Look at ME! Look at my ̶t̶e̶a̶r̶-̶s̶t̶r̶e̶a̶k̶e̶d̶ ̶c̶h̶e̶e̶k̶s̶ red rimmed eyes.

Can you understand me... Do I speak another language?

A form of speech you cannot comprehend?

Or do you choose not to try?

Can you simply turn away from someone who NEEDS you?

Do you not see the pain that is always there?

Is it a sign that you do not detect the razor within my bag?

Or do you choose to overlook it as you did everything else?

Do you not feel me bump into you in the hallways?

Do you not notice my frazzled gaze?

Don't you feel something wrong as I hide within the bathroom stall?

Can't you hear the razor drop to the floor?

Don't you see the blood... my life oozing out of me?

As my eyes drift closed... I hear a voice calling me...

But I let it fade with the light...

And embrace the answering darkness....
