Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


Your voice,
it's there.
Breaking me down,
tearing me apart,
waiting for me to fall and burn.

His voice,
is there,
helping me up again,
telling me it's ok,
watching my back.

Your voice,
it's there,
screaming,
about the screw up I am,
and the life I have to live because of it.

His voice,
is there,
softly saying,
power through,
you are who you make yourself to be.

Your voice,
is there,
making me cry,
making me wish I was never born,
wishing you'd leave me alone.

His voice,
is there,
telling me your wrong,
letting me scream at him for no reason,
then looking at me with no hard feelings.

Your voice is gone.
His isn't.
I'm finished listening to you.
Because your wrong,
He may not be right,
but your not either
and he's a better person then you'll ever be.

Addressed to my lovely (sarcasm) father, and someone who's helping me shut him out. Thanks to that person, even though he doesn't realize it's him.
