I Know

It’s hard for me to hear you

Because I talk

I talk


And I expect you to do the same

I want you to do the same


When I grip the phone under my pillow as I fall asleep, awaiting the buzz of your next text

When you hold me while I weep

When you watched an episode of Star Trek with me

When we race down the highway listening to our favorite white boy jams

When I feel the slight shudder of a tickle from you running your fingernails along my arm

I know

You tell me

Over and over

In so many ways

But it’s hard for me to hear you

So I’m going to stop talking

I know
