when silent screams fall on deaf ears

Free Verse

Frown frown, turn around
Hide it with a smile.
No crying, no crying
Hide it with your lying
If only for a while.
 
It would be amazing if you'd listen to me,
Just one time.
But nobody else does
So why should you?
 
You would think after a while
The pain would fade
And eventually, it would
Die out.
But it never goes away
 
Why can't you see how much it hurts!
I may look fine
You would think I'm perfectly happy
But on the inside
I'm dying.
 
And when the pain you cause becomes overwhelming
When the fiery sadness spreads through my veins
It has to force its way out
Tear by Tear
Bloody Cut by Bloody cut
 
I would ask for your help
I would beg and cry and plead
But you don't care
So go ahead and cover your ears
To my silent screams
 
Frown frown, turn around
Hide it with a smile.
No crying, no crying
Hide it with your lying
If only for a while.
