“Look at me”, she screamed hoarse in her head
“Stop looking at the time! And look at me! I’m right here, with you. Next to you. Why don’t you see me?
Talk to me. Distance between us grows because our silence fills the gaps. Set down your phone. Forget your work. Talk to me!
Open up with me. Share your thoughts and ease your mind. I will never judge, for the thoughts that cross your mind. Open up with me!
Words that flowed easy as did our emotions, are now bounded by chains. We are growing with our priorities, I agree. But stop. Let’s stop pushing each other away.
I’ll simply say, hey! pay attention to me. The wouldn’t be much left after we are done.
Let’s not lose you and me.”
