Listening to Myself

Folder: 
My thoughts

I'm listening,
listening to myself.
Listening to what I
might have to say.

I hear a voice,
it's telling me,
not to stand out,
to blend into the crowd.

Don't call attention
to yourself.

I try and do
what it is that
this voice is telling me.

Don't do that!
That's not what
I've told you to do!

So I stop,
turn back around,
walk away, mentally,
and keep myself from looking back.

I'm listening to myself,
to what is being said,
but maybe this voice
isn't telling me to do things that are
good for me.

So I take a step back,
and look deep inside.

What I see inside
is a whole different me!

I see one me,
who is huddled in a corner,
reading a book,
and doing her own thing
all by herself.

This little shy me
is wearing a hoodie,
her hood is down,
but her hair is covering her face.

Nearby, I see another me,
who is a few feet away
from the little, shy me.

This me is standing,
in a wide open space.

She has my face,
she has my body,
she has my features,
but isn't dressed like the me I know.

She has a short sleeved shirt on,
shaved and very smooth legs,
with short jean shorts on.

She has her hair down,
but it works on her,
it curls on her face
making her look hot!

But when I try to focus
on what she did, with our hair,
my vision blurrs,
and I can't see the two of me inside of me.

So, all I can do,
is try and be,
the very best me
that I can be!

I'm Listening to Your Heart <3

Folder: 
Love

I'm listening to your heart,
moving in time to the beat.
It goes bum-bum-bum-bum-bum
and my heart listens and goes,
bu-bum-bum-bu-bum.

You're the reason I catch my breath,
as I listen to every word you say.
You're the reason my heart
beats a rhythm against my chest,
returning a song against your own.

The reason I'm wondering,
questioning, searching, believing,
is just because I am
thinking about you,
and what we could be.

I'm listening to your heart,
I can heart the beat,
and if you listen to mine,
you'll see, in due time,
that my beat will answer your questions.

This isn't an easy thing
for me to show,
how much I need you
to be able to know,
how much I think about you.

You asked me a question,
whether I feel the same
way about you
as you express that
you feel for me.

If you'll listen to
the beating of my heart,
you'll hear your answer,
as my heart sings its song,
my, yes I do, feel that way.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

To my love who makes my heart go bum, bum, bu-bum, bum! <3
