The words without

Here I stand before a mountain 
of lies,
The words without say... “Get 
over it”

Trapped in a state of confusion
The words without say...“Move 
on”

Emotionally drained of energy, 
devoid of a purpose,
The words without say... 
“You're lazy, uncaring”

Broken,  dead inside,
The words without say... “Give 
to me as before”

Solace found in a distant mind 
The words without say... 
“You're ignorant”

But... The words without 

They say nothing to me,

They do not understand the 
pain of a sensitive man,
