I Chose

Why when I talk people don't lsiten
but yet they think they know me
Why when I close my eyes to block out the world no one seems to notice
but yet they think they see me
When I chose no to listen then you chose to talk
when I chose not to see you then you chose to make yourself known

Why when I open my ears I dont hear anything said
but I hear one word being murmured
'help'
out of everything I chose to do and not to do you still seem to slip that word in there
i am choosing no to open my eyes again so I cant see you
so I can figure otu what to do
but i am choosing not to feel
I am choosing to not let this be real
