back talk

Sometimes I wonder why I talk
when no one hears me anyway,

And sometimes I stop talking
because I don’t want to argue--

I always need reminding
to talk like no one’s listening.

  1. I really like this... "talk like no one’s listening." I need to do that more often too.

  4. I so love this... I was married to a man and eventually essentially gave up talking (didn't listen, sick of fighting) and he didn't notice.
