Please Don't Speak

So many times I begged of you

Please don't speak, just listen

And maybe you will hear

You never heard the words I had to say

My own words were overcome by words from you

Every attempt to converse with you  

Ended just this way

You never heard me because you wouldn't listen

Now my darling, your words I do not hear

So please don't speak, I will not listen

I don't even want to hear your voice

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Failure to communicate completely reversed the roles in this relationship.  And one might say, turned love into hate.
