Hear Me Now

Embrace the silence; don’t weep for me
I’m already gone
Worlds divide us constantly
And on and on
I’ve failed you; there’s no excuse
It’s just me; it’s just what I do
So there’s your truth

And I can tell you that I’m emptied out
And that it’s lonely here when you’re not around
And I could let the words escape my mouth
But you won’t hear me now

“I’m sorry:” words I know well
They can’t fix this; I can’t fix myself
I just melt

I’ve tortured and bloodied my muse
Needlessly battered and bruised
Hoping this time I don’t lose
It’s no use
