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?

Not Mine

He told me a story 

One about love and humor

He smiled in a way I’ve never seen before

His eyes wide and excited

A thrill in his voice
He talked about love

But it was one not to be mine

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

Don’t Talk

Work hard and stay humble

When everyone else casts you aside

Surprise them by not being boastful

Let them talk, that is all they do

Try your hardest and let your achievement do the talking

Our Conversation 

I looked in his eyes and saw reflections of me

Does he understand? Does he truly see?

What we could be

I and he.
I say I love him, I said it shamelessly 

I feel light, I feel free

His eyes seem to smile happily.
His mouth parted as if he was about to say something

Then I woke up hearing my own heart breaking.

…because I don’t know how your mind works
No lines I can read
No sentences I can understand
I am not sure what to think about the things that you do
The things that you say
You are being yourself
But something in me has changed

I hate myself for starting this feeling
But I hate myself more if I push it away

I still can’t tell you
I hope you can tell me instead 🙂

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

Dancing Conversation

He smiled knowing it would melt a thousand hearts
I realized I looked away slightly
Then slowly looked back up at him
A teasing smile
And I clumsily responded,
A decline to his invitation for a group movie date

His wide smile faded
A forced grin took place
And I know deep down he would have wanted my answer to be otherwise
Though it is more of a friendly tone,
His reaction to my decline made my heart skip a beat 🙂

Hold That Thought

Before you say a word
Let me say something
Hold your tongue and let me speak
Words come by so easily
Yet they leave a mark so deep
No I just wanted to let you know
Something I’ve always wanted to say
So hold that thought and let me speak
If only I could remember what it was I wanted to say

No Say

So much more was said
When you did not say anything

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
