Deafness

By
More by this author
I have walked these halls for four years.
Now I can’t even look in the mirrors.
The ones that look back at me with eyes,
Because I didn’t stop their cries.
I brush past them few times a year,
But it may have been me who stopped the tears.
They needed someone who hadn’t left,
As I pretended like I was deaf.
I turned them away,
I didn’t have time,
Besides you are not my kind.
Now I can see the mistake I have made,
And I try to deny the truth that hurts
But we both know what I could’ve done,
To stop the boy who pulled the gun.

wow.. this is very well written. the last two lines really hit home hard.

If this is true about you... damn... that is a lot to bear on your shoulders. I'm sorry.

I hope writing helps you get it out.
