What lyrics of mine do you choose to hear?
Do you hear the words spoken from my heart,
Or do you hear only what you expect,
Fashioning a mask I refuse to wear?

Few words but powerful!  I think we are all guilty at some stage of not 'hearing' or even 'seeing' and I love how you have made it so real in the last two lines.  Very well written and observed my friend!

Thank you very much. Nothing like real life to provide inspiration. :)

Absolutely true ... the majority of my inspiration comes from real life lol.  If we didn't have our ups and downs, we'd have nothing to say or write about lol :)

Like writing something from the depths of your heart and with words that have multiplicity reflected from the very heart beat of the universe. And the sad part being that all you get in return is an empty reply. Words can have a deeper meaning if you feel where they come from. Some people just fill their interpretation with misconceptions and misunderstandings. It's their view of the world and their choice to cover up the writer with whatever mask of interpretation they choose, whether it be true of false to who they really are. It is only their misunderstanding that led them to do so. Who can change that but themselves.
This is what I get from this.

This happens to me sometimes. Deep meaning looked over and stamped with the seal of misinterpretation/misunderstanding.
You are not alone...

Yeah, I mean this has happened in more than just my writing. I've had numerous conversations with people where I express a simple concept in plain simple English (in context of native English speakers no doubt)  and they still come up stupid interpretations that don't make sense.

Almost like they do it on purpose because they're scared of the truth of the matter, or actually do completely misunderstand in regards to your greatest efforts.
All you can do is just understand and move on knowingly that that's how it's going to be. There probably is some deeper psychology to this that I can't put entirely into standard text format, but they mean no direct harm unless only to the misinterpretor of action.
(16, haven't taken Psychology, and I know all this stuff off hand... :D )
Anyways, thanks for being cool about this.

I love this one, because I believe in speaking from the heart and I don't get it when people don't hear. And in return I seek to hear past words:-)
