Listener

I am the listener

The one who understands

I am the one they run to

But no one holds my hands

When it’s my time to share my story

Who will be there to listen?

Hello Up There!

I talk to you though you never say much

Near enough to see,

Far enough unable to touch

You listen to my woes and often we don’t say a word

Yet you fill this aching heart

You manage to remove the stabbed sword

I sit here, looking up

We both are quite still

To The Beat

Tap, tap, tap

Tap to the beat

Nod your head and hum like no one is around 

Sing your heart out

Just let it go!

The Radio

And so on it played 

While everyone rushed 

The tune echoed 

Noise 

Drown the sound!

I cannot hear
Everyone is talking, no one is listening 

Everyone for themselves

Trying to upstage one another  
No one listens

And all I hear is noise 

The Playlist

The music starts and at first you listen
You don’t know the words yet, so you try to, you’re driven
The melody takes you and engulfs you
You start to hum along too
Then the emotion carries you away
And you let it because you never wanted to stay
Then slowly it comes to an end
The song about to die down, what have you learned my friend?

And as the songs replay, reshuffle, repeat
You know the words now, you’ve learned, so you’re on your feet
The playlist is much like history, much like love
It tends to repeat itself, this I know of

Wide eyes

That see nothing and no one else
One that only sees you

Ears that listen, and listen well
Only hear your voice
Conversations that go on and on and on and on

That is what I’m looking for

Replay

Over and over it plays
On repeat, it seems to go on for days.
The tune in mind is stuck
Trying to rid of it but no such luck.
The sound goes on and as it ends
I hit replay once more

Maria Michaela

No one listens…

everyone talks so loud
They waltz around looking so proud
But do they understand?

No talking, just shouting
Two ears to listen, that’s where we need to begin

Bond Through Music

Whenever I miss you, whenever I’m down

I listen to one of your favorite songs

It gives a smile to my frown

And it’s right where I belong

 

The melody, the lyrics, engulfs my soul

I close my eyes and I see you, feel you’re near

I feel the rhythm, my heart it stole

Just like how you would remove all my fears

 

I cuddle myself as I listen and feel each beat

to the beat of my own heart

We may not see each other often now

But I pray the music that binds us

will help us get through this somehow

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
