Listen

Listen to me cry out. 

Can't you hear my tears or is my smile too loud?

Listen to the creak of my heart.

Can't you hear it breaking from the weight of this world?

Listen to the silence.

Can't you  hear me calling for you?

Your warm arms have gone cold and closed.

You say you're nearby, but you feel so far away.

Your smile, once bright, now fills me empty with darkness.

You make promises, but I just want you home.

Oh listen to me cry out!

Can't you hear my tears or is my smile too loud?

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
