All Ears & No Mouths


Pains my heart 

to watch 

the other hearts 

in pain;

And pains 

my heart more,

unable to help 

everyone out of it.


So share 

if you need to 

whatever’s bothering 

your nights sleep,

whatever’s keeping you 

off concentration,

whatever’s letting you 

not pay attention

where you must;

and i promise

to be a listener,

patient and mum;

i promise,

to be all ears 

and no mouth;

no unnecessary advice,

no unnecessary moving 

of my lips,

no unnecessary wisdom;

because I realise,

it’s okay

to not be wise.



vent all you’re holding back,

vent all that’s holding you back;

I’m all ears

and no mouth;

Hold on,

talk to me;

Hold on,

to let go!
