Nobody Listens

My heart beats like a drum
Its pace quickens
It begins to race
Sweat drips from my brow
I feel it prickling my back
A shiver runs down my spine
My hands are shaking
My whole body is shaking
I cannot speak
Words are stuck in my throat
Strangling me
Can’t breathe
I choke

Everyone looks at me
It’s my turn
My turn to speak
I open my mouth
My voice is trembling
Everyone listens?
Nobody cares

Because nobody listens when they’re not used to hearing you speak

Nobody Listens

Same theme as my last poem, but more about a specific situation I often find myself in.
