If I let my self go from here
Stop everything just to hear
If the static washes out your voice
And if I can feel any remorse
We make promises we all break
In silence this time we take
Ponder the when and how
And if it’s smart block it all out
But we always remember the scars we leave
The ones that cut too deep
All the years that got us here
And all the things still left to see
And the sun don’t shine here anymore
The night feels more like home
And when I start to feel lost or alone
I remember why you’re gone
Maybe I’ll find my way alone
Or wind up settling down
This king of nothing
And his broken crown
I can not fathom a person who trivialises someone else’s feelings simply because they do not, or refuse, to understand how that person can feel that way. I can’t fathom a person who can not put their self aside, and try to see things from someone else’s perspective, simply because they themselves can not fathom being wrong.
Acknowledging a persons feelings toward something, even if it were the smallest of circumstances that, in any other given situation, you would deem unworthy of your attention, is acknowledging a piece of that person that they are trying to share with you. Be it through a story, a song, an activity, a noise, words, not words, the most painfully unpleasant thing you can do to someone, is belittle their feelings because you feel differently, rather than sincerely trying to understand, in a kind, soft manner.
People are not always going to see eye to eye, and that is to be expected, but when taken to with condescension, anger, malicious words and actions, one can not be expected to continue putting themselves into a position to be put down.
After a while, they build the levy strong enough that it won’t break anymore, and all those feelings will be kept at bay.
