Honesty or Tranquility?

June 7, 2011

Lindsey W., Monongahela, PA By Flouter, Chicago, IL

You hear but never listen
You look but never see
Pay attention for once
Realize that something is wrong
That I need your help
But you don't notice
You just smile and think everything is fine
But you'll see
Just how wrong things are
Just how miserable I am
And how confused I feel
You're right there
But I'm so alone
I want you to understand
But I'm afraid of your reaction
You confuse me with your redundancy
Say you're always there for me
Say you'll always understand
Then, if there's the slightest upset in your delusional peace
You go into a rage
What do you want from me?
Honesty, or tranquility?
