You speak aloud
And no one listens
The words topple around you

You speak again
And resolve to answer yourself
Asking why no one gives attention
Why does no one respond?

You shout
And the sound echoes, empty
Like footsteps on pavement
Falling wordlessly distant

You scream
One more time
And still no return
Only the repetition
Of your own voice
Answering back, hollow
Mocking your own mind
