Listen....


I posted this ear before so you'd whisper something naughty. Yes that was nice but then I realized these ears of mine have something else they need to do...

Shhh, can you hear me?
You ask so many questions...I have the answers.
Why can't you trust me?
Is it because I've let you down, I've caused you pain?
What you seek to know, it's right here.
You've cursed my existence and sworn to put an end to my life.
But you can't do it can you?
Sometimes you succeed for awhile, but eventually you turn to me again.
Maybe some days my judgment seems clouded, but really that's just you not listening again.
I have scars to prove my worthiness.
Look at them, they'll show you how far we've come together.
When you've felt like ending it all, I keep beating, breathing life back into you.
I do it for you, not for me.
Listen.
Thump, thump, thump.
That rhythm can calm your fears.
Use me.
That's what I'm here for.
Forget my mistakes, everyone makes them.
Mistakes are the lessons that make us remember, the reasons we change.
If you would just listen....to me, you would hear me saying - I love you.
Please listen.

Happy HNT.

    "Communication" is cliche. Listening is too often marginalized. It's the life blood of any meaningful relationship. Muscles atrophe if you don't use them. Luckily our ears don't do the same.

    I wanted to whisper something so I had five of my friends start a comment, whisper it to each other and then finally it got to me and here's what it is:

    Big tunes rather not be happy!

    It might have been something different in the beginning, but I couldn't tell you what it was.

    Hmmm... well, it's a beautiful ear perfectly proportioned and crying out to be kissed. As for the message... someone needs to start listening, NWC!
