When the lights go out and noises fade,
I’m left with the voices in my head I’ve been trying to fight all day
Now, they’re too loud to fight,
Too clear to ignore.
I’ve lost the battle.
I listen clearly only to realise they’re all I’ve actually needed
All I hear is the hurt and the pain
The happy moments have been overshadowed
Maybe cause they were forced
Maybe cause they were a lie
Perhaps, a shadow cast on reality
Regardless, I’m glad I listened.
I learnt to let go of the pain.
