When the world around me ceases to exist and then i will open up and let a cruel man like you in


I know they are speaking
But i dont hear their words
I see their lips moving
I know words come out
I give a new meaning to "In one ear out the other"
I do miss sound and words
Why cant i hear? you might ask
Because of the pain
I chose not to listen
I'm afraid of what i might hear
The words wont be...
or Happy
They will be mean words like...
Those words hurt
More than you know
So i chose not to hear them
I let them go
"In one ear, Out the other"
Because i cannot listen

I wish I could do the same sometimes. But I can't seem to help hearing.
