How could I not have seen through you

Wish words had more meaning
The power to shake a soul
Break a heart
Consume the mind
Shatter you

As they flow so gently from your lips
Yet crash into my existence
I stand and wonder when your words will rise with new meaning
Crushing my being
Yet they fall
Still I cry as the impact of your voice my soul cant deny

The whispers that defined me
The anger that became me
How could I not have seen through you
So brittle
So raw

My eyes never see you yet my heart feels every word you speak
I break
You laugh
I cry
You count the tears in the dark
Holding them against me as soon as the day shows its face
Feeling its cold embrace as the past I can not erase
