Can You Hear Me?

I whisper...

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I mumble…

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I shout…

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I yell…

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I scream…

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

At the top of my lungs…

At the bottom of my heart...

In the middle of the world…

This world, that world…

Make up your mind…

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Do you see the cuts that line my skin?

Can you tell that this smile isn’t real?

Are you meant to be my hero?

Did you come to save me?

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Can you hear my cries for help?

Help! Help!
