A little honesty for your drama

Heavy words

Light tongue

Aching soul

You share with me


Beat on my walls

They won’t break

Not for you

Better than you have tried


Carelessly hurl your thought

They scream as they approach

They die at my fortress keep

I am walled in too tight


You're desperate for attention

You won’t get it here

Go cry somewhere else

Your tears mean nothing to me


Quell your drama

Grow the fuck up

Not everyone is against you

Most don’t even know you’re alive!


So, go fill someone else’s ears

Go break someone else’s heart

Go spread your poison elsewhere

I don’t need what you have to offer
