Noise short poem

Photo by aayars

You tell me you know my pain
That it’ll heal on its own
That it’ll go away
You tell me that you understand my struggle
“Oh, i know how you feel, calm down.
It’s not worth the trouble”
You tell me these things
But what evidence do you bring?
Because all that I hear is noise.
You tell me i’m overreacting
And that i do have a voice
But here you are speaking for me
As if i ever had a choice
You speak as though it is the same prejudice we share
But the truth is you cannot fathom it
Because we had to tell you it was there
But to tell me you know my pain
Is to stab yourself in the leg
Because you saw me get shot
We have two different wounds
And looking at yours does nothing to heal mine
You tell me these things
And you say them with poise
But at the end of the day
All that i hear is noise

Noise Of Pain

Noise Of Pain short poem

My world is so silent of joy now, heartbreaking so, my phone no longer pings with your words of love princess. I hear nothing but the streaming of my tears and the echo of your voice in my head. I
