    You Aren’t Listening

    Are you listening to the words I say?
    Or are your own thoughts getting in the way?
    The image you had that I was perfection
    Is now under scrutiny, under inspection
    You thought I was perfect right down to the core
    You failed to see the darkness, oh you wouldn't explore
    The depths of my heart and the depths of my soul
    Are rotten and broken and no you just can't console
    Are you listening to these words I say?
    Or are your own thoughts getting in the way?
    I've screamed so loud that I'm dying inside
    Why won't you listen to the fear that I hide?
    I destroy myself just to feel complete
    I spill all my blood and leave it at your feet
    I’m on the ground and on my knees
    Take me by my throat, please just squeeze
    Why aren't you listening to the words I say?
    Why are your own thoughts getting in the way?
    I will hunt you, stalk you, and infect your dreams
    I will laugh at your pathetic screams
    I'm sorry I didn’t mean to throw a rock into your reflection
    But I cannot fit into your ideals of perfection
    Maybe some things are better left broken and scattered
    Left empty and alone because it never really mattered
    Veiled in darkness, secreted in bitterness and self doubt
    Like living before there was me, like living without
    Please tell me you're listening to the words that I say
    Please don't let your own thoughts get in the way
    At night the scars of loneliness rip open and it aches
    You look at my tears and see all the past mistakes
    My heart's a hallowed space, my eyes an empty stare
    But since you aren't listening, don't pretend to care
