Can you hear me?


By: Yasmine Cruz, Staff writer

Have you not heard me scream

Screaming out for you and only you,

Feels like I’m falling in a dream

A dream I will never break through.

As my heart continues to grieve

Crying out for what I can’t claim,

When to me you finally came

I was so stupid and naive.

Can’t you hear me calling out

Can’t you see my broken heart

Shutting out everyone who cared

Promising to never speak again.

You came to me with your pain

Yet ran away when I brought up mine,

Didn’t listen to those who tried to explain

It should have been an obvious sign.

Even when you are never around

You are always with me, on my mind

Even though you’ve left me behind

To you, I am now eternally bound.
