I’m trying to silence the voices
that tell me you don’t care.
They ring loudly in my ear.
They shout to me.
They tell me to stop wasting my time.
But I don’t listen.

I love him! I say
They say
he doesn’t.
I want him so bad! I say.
But he doesn’t.
I can’t silence these voices.
But I can’t listen to them either.
So they continue to ring loudly
in my ear.
