Walls

I hear voices around me
Their anger and hate surround me
At times it seems they control me
They force their way in so slowly
Sometimes they seem to make sense
They say to cause pain and relieve my stress
If you really listen these walls talk
I can hear them wherever I walk
Everyday they grow louder and speak more truth
With every word it seems I have less to lose
If you can't hear you'd think me insane
But I alone have seen their pain
If you look real close you can see how deep
From the cracks in the walls you can see them bleed
If you don't pay attention you'll miss it all
But if you don't ignore you can hear them call
I've stayed so long I can feel them breathe
As their pulse quickens the cold feels like heat
Even if I could I wouldn't break free
I'd miss the sweet violent words they whisper to me
The only thing standing still is the hands on the clock
For all of this time the walls still talk
