Talking And Listening

Copyright © 2009 Timothy S. Klugh. All Rights Reserved.

So much to talk about,
So little to hear it.

So much to be heard about,
That cup runneth over.

The listener is happy to listen,
But sometimes the listener
     would like to be heard.

I'm happy to hear
How your life is going.

We chat of it
All of the time.

We speak of your hobbies,
Your past and your dreams.

And I want to assure you
     that's fine.
But when will we
     chat about mine?
