Why do we listen

To the noise that comes

From loved ones mouth

The heart we yearned

For how long do we

Patiently bear

The darts and jabs

And ice cold glares

Torturous silence

Let loose every time

When we try to

Make our point

The thread is stretched

Far too long

The bonds can’t hold

The strain that large

Someday will come

And they will crack

And world may come

Crashing down
