Distracted (National Poetry Writing Month 2023 #29)   Leave a comment

You're sitting right across from me
With one ear in the air
You don't hear anything I say
And you don't even care
Too busy with that little voice
To even be aware
I know my words have hit a wall
And I can only stare
I could tell you that I'm upset
I don't think you would care
You only care about that voice
My words hit empty air
When it's speech is finally done
That's when you come aware
Left alone in an empty room
'Cause I'm no longer there.

– SR Romney 2023
