Can I Live?

I Am Silent, Listen - Poem by Can I Live?

So much can be said through silence,
Aphonia? no, slience
I am silent
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me screaming,
hurting, frustrated, yearning
to make eye contact with you.
I am silent...

[You can't do this
I know how that feels
You know how that feels!
How can you do this?
You are his everything
You are his life
He is nothing to you
You are his life]

Please listen to what I am not saying,
It is in no way trivial
And you should pay attention to my eyes very carefully
I will give you the answer
To your misery
I am trying for you
I am crying for you
See my tears?
Read them with an open heart

[You are heartless
You are selfish
I am not on your side
Screaming at you

Please take this hint
That I am with you
I will fight for you
I will talk to you
Please leave her
Because she is your everything
Because she is your life
Because you are nothing to her
Because she is heartless
Listen to the silence
Look into my eyes
Read my tears
They are for you

I am on your side
