Sit and ListenEveryday I sit & listen,
It's always the same.
Everyone spills their life to me,
Not that they're entirely to blame.
So rarely am I asked how I am,
Before someone tells me about their day.
To them that's all I'm there for,
A face to spit words at as they may.
None of them really see my pain,
Not that I advertise it plainly.
I just wish they'd try to pry,
Instead of using me, mainly.
They're not all at fault though,
Despite what it seems.
I sit there with a fake smile,
Drowning them out with internal screams.
Don't get me wrong,
I do in fact listen to every word.
I want to help,
Even if sometimes I wish I could be heard.
So I sit and listen, giving advice.
Not that anyone ever takes it to heart.
Then I find myself wondering,
"Why bother to help; why even play the part?"
Yet I continue to sit and & listen.
Regardless of my mental tension.
Because no one would speak to me,
Unless they were the center of attention...
Love is a Six Letter WordR is for her resounding beauty. Both inside & out. The kind that keeps you up at night wondering if you deserve her.
E is for her ethereal personality. So unique, yet so fragile. The phrase "one a kind" never meant so much to me.
G is for the gentle way about her. How she cared about every living creature, no matter how small.
R is for her rejuvenating presence. Simply being around her, without a single word being uttered, was enough to lift my soul beyond any happiness I believed I could have.
E is for her everlasting smile, burned so deeply into my mind. So perfectly bright, as if it was a scene within a romantic movie.
T is for the throbbing in my heart that started the moment I laid eyes on her. That lasted to the first time we spoke, th
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
