Listen!

I heard

Those words

Stumble forth

Spittle hanging

On your lips

 

I had things

To ask

To raise

To help

 

I listened

I should have

Listened

Harder

 

To the spaces

Between those

Words

Should have

Listened

To your eyes

Should have

Listened

To the way you

Stood

 

Should have

Listened

Harder

Listened

So

Much

Harder
