Words can only be spoken
But then again they can be written.
But when written they have less or more meaning

When spoken, they are ignored.
So, when one wants others to stop
And listen they sit and write.

But no one can understand the feeling!
For when they spoke it the feeling it was meant to be
People took one look and dissed it
Saying it just them being attention hungry.

One is in pain
One is in joy
No one really cares
They want them to shut up.

When when gone those words
They haunt all who refuse to listen
Those who brush it off
Those who just walk away.

Then those once so called annoying words
Not written, become more important
And easily forgotten.

    Words are used for communication purposes. When they do not communicate, they do not function as intended. You have expressed yourself well here.
