Poem: Listen to me... I need to talk.

Updated: Jan 28

Listen to me, please, I need to talk to you; Give me only a few minutes; Accept what I experience, what I feel, Without reserve, without judgement.


Listen to me, please, I need to talk; Do not bombard me with questions, advice and opinions; Do not feel obliged to settle my difficulties, Could it be that you lack confidence in my competence?


Listen to me, please, I need to talk; Do not try to entertain or amuse me, It would make me think you fail to understand the importance Of what I am going through.


Listen to me, please, I need to talk; Do not feel it your duty to approve, if I need to tell my story It is simply to be set free.


Listen to me, please, I need to talk; Do not interpret and try not to analyse; I would feel misunderstood and manipulated, And could no longer tell you anything.


Listen to me, please, I need to talk; Do not interrupt me to question me; Do not attempt to force me to reveal what is hidden, I know how far I can and will go.


Listen to me, please, I need to talk; Respect the silences which help me to make progress; Be very careful not to break them; It is very often through them that things are clarified.


So now that you have let me have my say, I beg you, now you may speak; Attentive and at your disposal, I, in my turn, will listen to you.
