Battle of the Voices

I try to scream in her direction

Her hands are covering her ears

Trying to drown out the voices in her head

So she doesn’t hear me say

I love you

I know

That she needs to hear it

I try to get her attention

But the voices still scream

In the familiar sound of people from the past

The scars are still deep

Not even the self inflicted ones

Or ones that anyone can see

They reside in her memories

I’m trying to tell her

I love her

But the other voices are battling with me


I don’t know who’s winning…
