Feeling distant

Talk

Long conversations
Now distant memories
Wrong motivations
Now listen in misery

Relationships feed on hearing
Ears gone to seed lips quivering
Hands on hips eyes on swivels
Nose sifts sniffs ayes only civil

Self-imposed cone of silence
Shelf life of love not five minutes
If it weren’t about you it could be about us
Any words even bad words would knock off rust

My simple request could be a game changer
Do as much for me as you do for a stranger
Listen politely with what I have to tell
Say a kind word or two and wish me well

Say a kind word
or two and
wish me well
