Did You Hear That? - Poem by Cameron Brooks

Did you hear that?
These thoughts i say aloud
Wondering whose listening
As i stumble through the crowd

Must i write it down
For you to aprehend my words
Once again you are distracted
By the music of the birds

Every day i beg of you
For attention of any kind
Just listen one sec my words are few
That have been engraved within my mind

Im suffering in the darkness
As you wander through each day
With wrists slit to bloody mess
In an eternal abyss i lay

Barely breathing and holding on
As i survive for one more day
I muster up the strength in me
For only two words i had to say
Help me.
Did you hear that?
