Voices

No one hears it
the voices whispering loudly
screaming in my head
they won't shut up
"Don't dare to try"
"You're just a waste of space"
"Foolish little girl"
"She'll never notice your pain"
"She can't really love you"
"No one will ever love you enough to stay"
Please shut up
I can't stand this silent noise
Falling apart each day
Fighting against my mind
I don't work like you
My mind a deadly trap
They love the silence
In it they can truly scream
But the music may drown them out
Keep them quiet for a time
So give me a book
An ipod full of songs
Let me tune them out
Fill my mind with words
Keep these voices silent
Til only other's words fill my mind
Kill the voices quickly
Before they can destroy me
