Cry for Attention

“Go away.” “Get lost” “Nobody wants you here” 
The words still ringing in his ears.
He bangs, slams, makes noise, makes sounds,
Loud noises. He screams, he cries, he roars.

He takes a drug, and another, even another.
He drinks, drinks all night, has sex, and cries.
In his dark room, he watches, as he drowns himself,
He begs, anyone, anybody, anything! Please listen,
To his screams and cries.
