Silence.
You never seem to hear me.
I'm like a ghost, shouting and screaming, but you still can't see me.

Why am I invisible?
Why does it seem I've gone hoarse?
Am I really so soft-spoken?

No, you just detest me.
I'm an annoyance, none less.
To recognize me is to turn your back on all of your beliefs.

But..........
Couldn't you? Just this once?
Could you listen to my ever-going voice?

I guess not.
Apparently I am not enough?
Not enough to satisfy your pompous demands?

Oh well.
I don't care, or at least I won't let it show.
I guess I can just whisper goodbye.

I think the title was my favorite. Even though you asked me to read it, it still drew me in. Very simple yet powerful, and you can emidiatly tell that the person thought about it. Again, wonderful Lisa. Plus its great chatting with you :)
