You won't hear me, or you can't 
why won't you hear me? Why can't you hear me? 
Why do I ask why... why?
When I know the answer. 
You feel safe when you won't hear me. 
You feel safe avoiding the inevitable. 
Why do this to yourself? 
Endless, needless torture,
You think you know, 
You know what you think, 
You continue to be consumed in awe, awe of the ego
You need not be. 
Come back, 
You need not care.
I am not present in your mind's thought. 
I am present, here and now. 
If you want to come back. 
Bliss is not in the ignorant.

    Powerful last line. Quite the mental battle between confusion & freedom. Nicely done!
