LISTEN



Listen to the words I am not saying
as I speak, analyse, and reason,
and make a lot of sense.
In those tiny fractions of a second
between nouns and verbs
- my perfectly coherent explanations -
I ruthlessly suppress my agony.
Because I am crushed
just as you are crushed.
Because I need you to be me
just as I crave to be you.
Because I am nothing more than
my own echo in an empty room,
a voiceless sound among
the ordered elements of my mind.

But you will not hear my call
or see the pain under my smile.
You will not dip into my feelings
that secretly spill onto the floor.
Because I am so fucking trustworthy
as I listen to you with empathy.
Because I act so goddamn responsible
as I fence your fears off.
Because you need that friend in me,
the friend who props you up
when you sway or hurt or doubt,
but not the lover who sweeps you
off your feet, dancing you
away into the fiery sunsets
of your imagination.

FreeLove: sorry but I do not understand your point and I think
you do not understand the poem either. It does not refer to any
current experience of mine. On the other hand friendship and
love do mean that you have to place some other people above
yourself sometimes. Also the poem touches on anticipation,
sometimes wrogly placed. And as a lyrical poem it focuses on
feelings. If you do not understand this then you are irresponsible.
