You’re hearing me within your thoughts
I need you to listen to me with your mind
Your heart can’t listen, it only feels weakness
Your mind screams truths, but you don’t listen, you only hear
It’s you, you have to separate your mind from your heart
Your brain can’t do it alone, no one hears alone
You can’t live in now pulling before and what if in each hand
Let go of spaces you can’t live, and face the day with an open mind
Control can be creative, messy, even spontaneous
So you have no excuse not to listen, hearing is a cop out.
You don’t even look at the words Your sideways glance tells me your in another tense
Darting eyes, fidgeting hands, one word answers.
We might as well be on the phone completing some obligation
Listen to me, look at my words, and let me know you’re here
If not, I’ll soon be too far away for you to hear
Then you’ll listen to me with someone else.
