Sorry, Could You Say That Again?

Yes, I hear you.

I'm giving you all the attention I could possibly give you,

But the problem here is simply that I can't process you.


Now allow me to explain.

You see, the vibration and number of sound waves in a woman's voice makes it harder for men to decipher what you're saying.

When it comes to processing a woman's voice,

We use the more complex auditory part of our brain.

This part of the brain is for processing music and poetry.

The most beautiful thing the human ear can hear!


When you speak, I get lost in a melody.

Your mouth is moving, that I can see,

But something just takes over me.

This melody sets my mind free.


And though nothing you just said adheres,

Your voice is music to my ears.

…So could you just repeat that last thing you said again?


- The Truth


Author's Notes/Comments: 

I've been writing in class a lot lately, and I think it's really starting to show in my work. This one is about how men's brains process voices.
Let me know what you think. It's inspired by a moment when I has having my first in depth conversation with this girl I know and I was afraid she didn't think i was listening to her.

Language is one the coolest forms of music....

There's a rhythmic pattern, melody to speech in my opinion. Some people speak muscially if you've ever noticed. Music, when you break it down, is just sounds and silences. Therefore, I think, music is everything. I like this one very much! (coming from a musician)
