"Honey, I've been thinking blah, blah, blah....."

by Sandy M. Humphrey

My voice is weak from pouring forth words and phrases yet unheard
Repetitive cycle has given me carpel tunnel of the larynx
I vow to remain silent and rest in a vacuum of question marks
Knowing my resolve will dissipate and fold into frustration
Due to total lack of recognition of my withdrawal from conversation
I am resigned to the task of learning to accept hearing my own voice
Speaking from within for sometimes it seems I am the only one
Other than my Creator who truly gets what I am going on and on and on
(Pardon me if I quote you wonÂ’t you dear) about or maybe it is only
I who truly feels so passionately for this moment, this subject, and you

Hi Sandy. This poem seems to "pour forth" or out anyways, and I'll bet it felt good to get it on paper. And it makes a definitive statement about the narrator. Well said. Thanks.

How creatively done. Venus and Mars do align with the stars once in awhile tho, which makes it all so darn perfect......

Ah, yes, listening IS one of the greatest acts of love. I am sure I don't always appreciate the love others give me when I go on and on... which I have a bad tendency to do. Thanks, Sandy.
