Closed ears
Deaf ears
Yet unyielding
Inaudible words
Words of truth
Words of advice
Advice from a loved one
A loved one who truly loves you
Please listen!
Drop the act!
Turn around and listen!
Hear me cry
I say it out of love
Listen to me!
Don’t let me watch you take the wrong turn
Don’t make me watch you make a mistake
I really do care
Listen to my words!
I truly care
It matters to me
Your good is my good
Your mistakes are my burdens
Burdens of guilt
The “I would haves”
The “I could haves”
The “I should haves”
Save me from this pain
Just turn around and listen
Do the right thing
Be less stubborn
Stop shunning the truth
Look around you
I see the letters on the wall
Turn around and see the handwriting on the wall
Listen to some of the whispers
There is truth in them
Please do me this one last favor
Just listen!
Make my wish come true
I love you
I need you to listen
I can't take it anymore
I SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And then you walk away
