Maybe

I'm a whisper in the dark
Falling on deaf ears
I'm a shadow
Gasping for one more breath
Loosing my mind
Numb all over
Drowning in an ocean
Of all the promises made
That scatter like leaves in the storm
Leaving me alone to face the storm surge
Back against the wall
Hand against my throat
Does this mean anything to you
Go on
Turn aside
Don't meet my eyes
Pretend you can't see
Full to the brim with bitterness
Laced with cynicism
I think your shame's my Novocaine
And its going to my head
Watch me go cold
Fade into myself till I'm done
And then you can cry for me
When you ignored my tears
Ignored my pleading
Left me bleeding
I'd give you my heart
Straight from my chest
No hesitation
You won't give me a nod
I'm accepting my resignation
I'll pour all my love
On the concrete
And let the words flow
Maybe
Just maybe
Something beautiful will grow
