Not Listening

My words are loud

My silence louder

My tears loudest



The air

All alone

Back and Forth


You were gone too

The world was loud

The people louder

The pain loudest

We’re different

Yet the same

Drowned out

By hustle and bustle

Conversation was loud

Words empty

Hearts emptier

I cried for help

You cried for help

My thoughts drowned me

You were sinking too

Help me

But not a soul

Was listening.
