Poem: The Listener

 

Talk of your pain and woes

The bitterness of hard times,

Talk of the burning sensation of tears you held back

Vent your aggrieved emotions on my ready ears,

Through the lengths of it all

I’ll stand docile,

Listening, even to thuds of your racing heart

I’ll patiently wait, listening through it all.

 

Talk of your fears

The cage that traps your soul within,

Talk of your dreams to soar like the free birds that bless the sky

Till you feel the freeness of heart to take a deep breathe,

Till your wall of constraint is broken

I’ll stay by your side,

Listening, even to the voices in your head

I’ll patiently wait, listening through it all.

 

Talk of your gains and joys

The thrill of living in the moments you had dreamed,

Talk of friends that took a stroll out of your life

Talk of friends that spiced your life

Talk of the love you see beneath my brown eyes,

Till time fades away

I’ll be right where you need me,

Listening, even to songs in your free heart

I’ll patiently wait, listening through it all.

-The Listener-

Mascotte.
