I hear you

But I can tell from your sentences
That you are not hearing me.
It seems that you think my silence
Means agreement.
You haven’t noticed
That I checked out long ago.
You didn’t even ask me
How I’m doing
You didn’t hear me sigh
Or maybe you did
But chose to keep it moving,
You had your own news to share after all.
But I am human too.
I hear you
And I am learning to do it more,
I am trying to offer you not just my ears
But also my heart,
Trying to give you the benefit of the doubt
Trying to not play the victim
Trying to believe
That you’re just not using me
Trying to hear your heart
Behind your words.
I’m trying-
Are you?
