Speak, I’ll listen
Today, I won’t speak but would like you to. You have a listener in me. Speak, I’ll listen.
Sanguine words fall on deaf ears
when the listener is tired.
Sometimes it’s better to just hear
the person who is haywire.
Often the solution comes
from a one sided conversation
because answers are already there on the tongue
and there is a perfect time for revelation.
Ever noticed how a child sleeps,
after a good long cry?
That child is grown up now
and has been devoid of a good cry.
Be patient just like a parent
and allow the flow of resentment
because a warped heart cannot ever see the present.
Speak my friend until you are content.
