How do you feel when nobody listens?

Like minds spin opposite ways

Why does the world revolve so slowly?

People say it’s fast,

But it doesn’t feel like it.

Or maybe it’s going too fast…

 

A Pain is a cake –

Soft and airy,

Easily broken.

Slice it like soft cheese,

Drop it and step on it like a doormat.

 

But nobody cares about it,

And nobody ever will.

Even the sweetest cakes leave your mind

As you leave the shop.

 

So, do I leave your mind

Every time you look away?

I am in pain,

And you cannot hear my cries.

Am I crying in my own grave?

Do you not see my crying eyes?

 

Do they flitter past you?

Or do you ignore their vigorous knocking

On the door of your mind?

You do not care,

And you never will.

 

Oh, why does the world revolve so slowly?
