There's a quiet frustration in the way I see them. There's a quiet frustration as they see me. They look but they don't get it. I'm tired of their stare. It's like they won't go away. Are they taking stock? Do you really need to continue being here? Please, go away. Because there's a quiet frustration I have with you. There's a quiet frustration I have with every glance. Leave me alone, is it so hard to ask. Go. There's a quiet frustration in the way they think of me. There's a quiet frustration in their messed up view. Because their perception is wrong. They don't understand. And there's a quiet frustration in knowing that fact. There's a quiet frustration knowing how poorly they know me. There's a quiet frustration because they don't understand. Just keep looking; you still won't get it. And you never do. And you never will. And that's why there's this quiet frustration I have with you and your complete misconceptions. It's irritating. It's annoying. It builds a frustration I can't even describe. They look and it's fine but what? Are you just counting my differences? Are you wasting your time not realizing anything right? And there's this quiet frustration that follows with this. There's this quiet frustration I simply can't shake as they continue to look at me and keep failing to understand. You don't get my motivations. You don't see my intent. So instead you go on your own whims assuming you have the idea while instead your inaccuracy merely serves to fuel this quiet frustration inside of me. And this is why there's a quiet frustration lingering at all. You're fools who don't see it--and barely fools at that. I have no words to call you because I simply can't find any beyond this irritation you cause me. And that's something I can't deny. You see this quiet frustartion I'm dealing with steals my own view of you away. This quiet frustration is now all that exists between us. And that's all I can see. All you do is view me and wrongly and I can't stand it much longer. Because this quiet frustration is all I have to go on. It's this insatiable irritation you caused me that drives me mad. Get out of my sight. I'm done with you. There's a quiet frustration in the way they see me. And there's a quiet frustration in the way I see them. What? I get it, now stop.  You need to go away. Because there's a quiet frustration I'm not letting on. There's a quiet frustration that's consumed me. There's a quiet frustration and it's growing. Don't Look At Me.
