Can You Hear Me Now?
eyes scream for love
wrists find nothing but sorrow
the mirror reflects what i have become
nothing more than an empty shell
moving through the day with fake smile and "hello's"
only to come home to the silence of family
i talk but no one hears
i scream and no one cares
alone in my haven is where it calls
with it's promises of relief
with a slow swipe the world disappears
only to reappear with a glimpse of red
the secrets no one knows
are the words that i scream aloud
can you hear me now?
