it does hurt when your words get ignored by someone..

only words.

i see

i see how my words get swept away,

with the wind

with the wind that twirls around your fingers,

like the bees restlessly humming

like the bees restlessly humming around the pale lilies,

each time i say a word,

each time i say a word, it

each time i say a word, it f

each time i say a word, it f a

each time i say a word, it f a l

each time i say a word, it f a l l

each time i say a word, it f a l l s

each time i say a word, it falls

falls upon your unruffled gaze,

slips onto your feet

slips onto your feet and gets brushed away

slips onto your feet and gets brushed away under the rug,

and only dissapears

and only dissapears;

only if you would have known,

only if you would have known, the efforts

only if you would have known, the efforts to form those syllables,

that is now fragmented

that is now fragmented into deceased letters,

and rests beneath

and rests beneath your callous hands,

it takes much more

it takes much more than just a breath

it takes much more than just a breath through the vocal folds,

it takes much more

it takes much more than a mere effort

it takes much more than a mere effort to get heard,

but my words

but my words get rusted each time

but my words get rusted each time into your toxic shadows,

and how much i wish

and how much i wish you would've understand

that they were

that they were not

that they were not only

that they were not only words

that they were not only words.
