Silence Your Ignorance, Or I Shall Ignore

You're in an intoxicated frame of mind, just go to sleep.

I'm going to lay awake in my bed, but I don't want to hear another peep.

You made your point the first time; I don't need to hear it again.

It's like you're stuck on repeat, and I have a lack of strength to defend.

So I'll fend for myself, and won't say another word.

But you can yell all you want, as your obscenities fly like vengeful birds.

Go ahead and let your hands speak for you, but just know I have the ability to ignore.

I can pretend you don't even exist and make you disappear; make you strain your voice until you're sore.

Scream and stomp all you want, but I'll let you know now that it will fall upon deaf ears.

I've learned this silent skill over time, after dealing with you for years.
