Listen to the quiet sobs in the night
And the whispers echoing in my ear.
Listen to the silent agony I suffer through daily.
Someone, please listen.
Listen to my troubled heart
That beats loudly in the stilled silence.
Listen to the choked back words
I yearn to say to you
But never do.
Listen to my dulled pleas
Screaming in my head
Trying to convince myself I'm alright.
