“She Listened”

 

He was completely

taken back

when she gave

him

her whole

attention,

he had just

got stabbed

in the back

by one of

his friendly

coworkers

another backroom

assault

on his character

a practice

that is becoming

all too common,

he felt the

need

to speak a

few words

if he could

just find someone

to listen

when he

saw her

standing there,

as he started

to tell her

about his

ongoing situation

she stopped what

she was doing

lowered her hands

and looked at

him

she didn’t speak

leaned a shoulder

against the wall

her whole body

turned off

as if to show

him

she was listening,

his mind was

racing

as he spoke

to her

trying to remember

the last time

someone listened

so intently

to what he

was trying to

say

he had forgotten

the purpose

of the conversation

the compassion

she was showing

him

in her eyes

alone

made him feel

special

like he personally

meant something

to her,

her body looked

as if it was

absorbing

the pain in

his voice

his mind

finally caught up

to his words

and it put

an end

to his rambling

sentences

none of which

really seemed

very important

anymore,

not after

she gave

herself

to him

in a way

he knows

he won’t soon

forget…
