November 28, 2009 - Listen To Me


Listen To Me

You ask for truth
I speak it freely
I tell you how I feel
You say you hear me,
Yet I think you never will

Why does it always have to be your way
Do my feelings make a difference to you?
Our friendship means so much to me
As I know I mean to you

One should not attempt to hold onto
A heart one does not freely give
But give wings to what they cherish
and smile and watch them live.

Please listen to me--
I have been listening to you.
-Neva Flores

What a beautifully written poem, it should cause any man to ask ," Is it I?" Is it I that can not hear the heart, Is it I that refuses to set free that which I love most?

This speaks to me of the terrible sadness of loving someone who does not show love in return.
