The volume may hurt my ears
But I like it better that way
It hurts less than
The words I hear without my headphones
I can change my world from dark eyes and murky water
To blue skies and unexplainable giggles
I can be happy
While everyone else is on their breaking point
And they wonder why
I don't pay attention
They ask me why
I don't know what's happening around me
It's just because
I don't like what my world turns into
When I take my headphones out

This is very well written. This can definetly relate to a lot of people. Like when you listen to your loud music with your headphones on, you just shut out the world. Blocking out the pain that the world brings. I totally can relate. Keep writing! ;)

It doesn't flow as well as I'd like a poem to while I'm reading it, but you've got something here. Keep writing. I love the topic. It is true. Music is sometimes a better way to breathe.

I can definitely relate---outside noise sometimes bugs me. With my headphones, I can just relax into soulful sounds, alternative rock and pop punk:)
