thenestor A lot of folks listen. Not too many really hear. Or maybe a lot of people hear but not too many really listen. I can't remember which one is right. I must not have heard it very well. 981120

maybe you'd realize that everything i said was a warning

tit i talk so much in hopes that one day i will find the one that listens. not to what i say, the funny jokes, concerned lectures, big words, but to what i dont say. i need to find the one that hears the crying in my laughter, the one that sees the personal urgency in my advice. i need to find someone that hears my silences. then i can stop talking so much because i wont be as scared 010322

LIL CHRIS I wish you would just listen to what I have to say. The words that I want to tell you mean so much to me. At times all you want to do is the talking and u don't let me tell you how I feel inside. Do you really have to do all the talking? Is it more important than what I have to say? 020829
devalis Please Listen

When I ask you to listen to me
and you start giving me advice
you have not done what I asked.
When I ask you to listen tome
and you begin to tell me why
I shouldn't feel that way,
you are trampling on my feelings.
When I ask you to listen to me
and you feel you have to do something
to solve my problem
you have failed me,
strange as that may seem.
Listen! All I ask is that you listen.
Don't talk or do- just hear me.
Advice is cheap; 20 cents will get
you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham
in the same newspaper.
And I can do for myself; I am not helpless.
Maybe discouraged and faltering,
but not helpless.
When you do something for me that I can
and need to do for myself,
you contribute to my fear and
But when you accept as a simple fact
that I feel what I feel,
no matter how irrational,
then I can stop trying to convince
you and get about this business
of understanding what's behind
this irrational feeling.
And when that's clear, the answers are
obvious and I don't need advice.
Irrational feelings make sense when
we understand what's behind them.
Perhaps that's why prayer works, sometimes,
for some people- because God is mute,
and he doesn't give advice or try
to fix things.
God just listens and lets you work
it out for yourself.
So please listen, and just hear me.
And if you want to talk, wait a minute
for your turn- and I will listen to you.

casinoboyjaysen I listened to what she was telling me:
I don't want to talk about him, or have you play saviour.
I don't want to tell you about the bruises, the split lip, because it makes it real.
I don't want you to "take me away from it all" but just to be my friend.
I won't marry you.
I don't want to be with you in that way.

I heard all that from the tears welling up in your eyes, and trickling down over your bruised, swollen face.
Reverend Lough ....for once.
....instead of talking, instead of always trying to have the final word. may just hear or learn something that you didn't know.
jenny are you listening? do you ever listen? do you even care about anyone but yourself? have you heard one word that i have said? do you even care what i think about or i hope for or i wish? do you know who i really am or are you just in this for my looks? how do i know that your true? please tell me 021221
imposter I listened to it for the first tonight since probably that first weekend, lying on her bed in the dark with it on repeat, wrapped in each other.

It really helped bring things back to basics for me.


now. . . hope?

Hope is a dangerous thing. But please, don't stop me -- I like it.

Nukemall I'm listening to what your problem is and I can't understand it and I'll bet it's hard to pronounce. 031009
nick Please understand that my problems aren't about you.

You can't fix them. You can't make them go away.

I don't want your solution. I don't want your words... for now.

All I want from you is silence and maybe a show of sympathy... a hug or some food... dad, just hand me a beer and tell me to shut the hell up... mom ... well ditto, but remind me of your love because that helps more than anything else. I didn't drive all the way out here to complain, but it's lonely in my crowd, and I don't have anyone to tell this too in the city.

Listen to me.
I'm fighting for my life everyday, and I'm winning!

Listen to me.
My regrets are piling up like a stack of dead kittens, and if I don't get these out of here soon I'll just have to hold my breath all damn day.

Listen to me.
I destroyed every obstacle in my path this week. Remind me to revel in my successes.

Listen to me.
I don't just tell anyone about this.
I trust you.
I love you.
I respect you.

All I ever wanted was your approval.

I'm ok... again :-)
timestop she told me she'd say everything she felt. i told her i'd only listen to lies. 031110
shivers u want to listen, i just dont want to talk
u always seem to know when i lie
nonlucid and I'd like to tell you, I wish to tell you, dammit, I just got up the courage to tell you, and you're not answering. Not talking to me. I say I have words for you, TODAY I will tell you what I feel (and thereby destroy myself) I say Now and not later, I'm holding my breath, preparing to launch myself into this hell I've been through so many times before.

And you say nothing. I ask if you have time to talk, time to ramble, time to meander around in circles of blather, you have better things to do. Dammit, you don't have to EVER talk to me again, just tonight, give me a minute or two, let me show you who I really am. Then hate me, despise me, shoot me, kill me, do what you please with my for-the-first-and-last-time honesty. Know my heart is yours to rend as you please.

Just listen
nighean_siofra listen to me please
listen to me!
hear what i say
do you understand
i'm still here you know
i DO have things to say
i hate it when you don't listen

pete we lay on the dock, side by side, watching the stars, looking for shooting stars, talking, listening, becoming comfortable with eachother to the point that when we stood up we spent the next two hours either hand in hand, or leaning into eachother, holding on to the other for warmth and comfort 040823
somebody "Don't speak unless spoken to"-

But who will listen if nobody talks?
dawn Today I realized that I am meant to be a listener. Sometimes my life is a series of events unfolding in the form of stories I am told. Sometimes I hear delicious things unheard by anyone else but me. Somethings I hear things that I dont want to hear, but I always seem to listen anyways. I find that people seem to unfold things to me that they never knew about themselves otherwise. By listening, I can help people find themselves.

Everything happens for a reason.

When I am in tune with this gift I usually come to see a person fully and differently than most. Some little intricate detail becomes noticable, and more beautiful about that person.

Sometimes I see a peoson for who they are and I dont like what I see. I always want to stop listening, but its hard.

There is one person that I love more than anyone I have ever loved before. Sometimes, though rarely, I can hear him think- and even though this sounds crazy, I have found myself lying next to him in a deep sleep and in full conversation with him, then waking up slowly and coming out of that hazy early morning conteplation to realize that we were not just actually talking. I was lying down, hearing him talk to me and hearing myself respond. we are communicating without words.

is this something that happens randomly, or can it be controlled and learned?

the most beautiful things learned are unspoken and just known.

its all about knowing how to listen
orchid sometimes it's what between the words that you need to hear
subtext speaks volumes
dawn good call

I like to listen to everything, not just words. its just what I was thinking about at the time

jlymry327 listen to me. listen to me like you listen to your favorite song. listen to me like introspection. listen to what im saying. listen to what im about to say.

why do i do this. why do i torture myself. why do i go back there everyday. why do i let myself go back there and hurt and feel pain and feel the butterflies. the nervousness. the nervouness. of butterflies. only bad. unexciting. the feeling that you know youre going to hurt soon. why do i do that to myself. do i like to hurt? do i like to hurt myself and think of things that hurt. i dont know.

i only just ever hurt myself. again and again and again and some more. and then again.

someday ill feel secure. thats the goal. to be ok. to not feel isolated and misunderstood. to not feel like the joke. the crazy. the psycho. the intense girl from the bar that makes people feel uncomfortable. to feel secure. thats the goal.

i cant find that in a tattoo
a piercing


music makes me go there.
makes me feel
music and me.

we go there.

again and again and again.
