I would say sorry
but I am so tired of lying,
and i am not much of anything.
But i know,
what i feel
and when I feel them.

flopping babies and
howling foxes
at least they’re making noise.

pots and pans are getting thrown
hands are slapping walls
i hear everyone yelling but you.

and hell, i wish so bad you would
fling yourself in the air, parade my medium
violate my confidence
i’m about to give this one more chance.
are you willing to show me
that you can try?

That's amazing.  The imagery is fantastic.  'Flopping babies and/ howling foxes/ at least they're making noise.'  That's my favorite.
