My ears are plugged.
Maybe I am too far away to convince myself to listen.
I am deaf, but only to you.
You are speaking English, yet the words seem foreign to me.
I’m not listening because you make sense.
Words turn into sentences, sentences into paragraphs, thoughts into mental images, mental images into the desire to listen or not.
Just because you stand before me doesn’t mean you are a positive influence on me.
Action and reaction, Verbal abuse or positive thinking. Sometimes hearing you isn’t enough.
What more can I say that will get your attention.
